Almost always it is those that serve (give, work, sacrifice, love)
the least that will be the most
people in the crowd whether it be in the
family, voters, church, occupation or group.
Do you have one in your family who avoids work?
He will be the one that complains and demands the most.
Do you have one in your church who serves little?
He will be the one most critical and quarrelsome.
Do you see citizens demanding more?
They will be the ones giving the least and taking little personal responsibility.
It’s ALL selfishness,
a lack of character and understanding that we are here to serve…
to love our neighbor!
Be alert! Take notice while your children are young. Are they lazy and demanding? Do they play the victim and go off on self-pity trips to pout? Are YOU guilty of responding this way and setting a pattern for your family?
- Help them to understand the value of work, time and money.
- Encourage them to show compassion for others.
- Explain to them the work/service of others that usually goes unnoticed.
- Be sure they understand there is no free-ride in life; someone somewhere must pay.
- Insist that they believe the best of people before jumping to the worst conclusion.
- Don’t demand things you have no real right too, YOU are setting the example.
- Point out ways to go the extra mile and go above and beyond what is expected.
- Do all you can to encourage a heat of service, not a heart of entitlement.
But many who are first will be last,
and the last first.
