“The greatest want of the world is the want of men—men who will not be bought or sold; men who in their inmost souls are true and honest; men who do not fear to call sin by its right name; men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the [magnetic] pole; men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall” (E.G. White, Education, p.59). The world is indebted to people who prize character over reputation. Whose only fear is the fear of the Lord and the fear of sin. Those who value principle over possessions, power, or pleasure. Such people unequivocally say “No,” when the rest of the world says “Yes.” With Joshua, they take a stand and declare publicly: “BUT AS FOR ME....” (Joshua 24:15). Now is our time. Stand up. Stand out. Stand tall. Would you? (credit: Dr. Samuel Koranteng-Pipim, http://eaglesonline.org/weekly-nuggets/nuggets-archives/)
Have a great week.
