Lessons for my kids pt 3

Reputation & Character

      You are a great gift to your generation

      Your reputation is what people think of you in public, your character is who you are in private. God isn’t interested in your reputation but in your character. What impresses people matters not to the master. Who are you when nobody is looking? What would you do and what decisions will you make if you know you won’t get caught? What kind of Christian are you, behind closed doors? ….character…..Once you have character it produces hope.

      When you triumph as a leader, its because of others

      To my boys…..Respect women; never hit a female

      To my girls….If a guy hits you once…..he will hit you again

      Live your life like you are going somewhere, like you have a future. Live your life like you have a goal/purpose in life. Like there is something you hope to achieve in future and you are moving towards that. Live like one day you will be running for a public office and you will be held accountable for all your actions (past or present)

      They don’t have to like you; as long as they respect you

      Who are you when your education, career has been removed? Who are you when everything you think makes you has been removed? Who are you behind the scene and when the curtain has been drawn?…..when you find that person, that’s the real you
