“But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience…” -2 Timothy 3:10-13
The way you live your life reflects your core beliefs. In this present evil age, we need men and women of faith who are willing to take a stand for truth and not back down. We need men and women who have godly character. Our young people need godly examples to imitate. –excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon “Needed: Godly Examples!”
“He that walketh uprightly walketh surely.” -Proverbs 10:9
His walk may be slow, but it is sure. He that hasteth to be rich shall not be innocent nor sure; but steady perseverance in integrity, if it does not bring riches, will certainly bring peace. In doing that which is just and right, we are like one walking upon a rock, for we have confidence that every step we take is upon solid and safe ground. On the other hand, the utmost success through questionable transactions must always be hollow and treacherous, and the man who has gained it must always be afraid that a day of reckoning will come, and then his gains will condemn him.
Let us stick to truth and righteousness. By God’s grace let us imitate our Lord and Master, in whose mouth no deceit was ever found. Let us not be afraid of being poor, nor of being treated with contempt. Never, on any account whatever, let us do that which our conscience cannot justify. If we lose inward peace, we lose more than a fortune can buy. If we keep in the Lord’s own way and never sin against our conscience, our way is sure against all comers. Who is he that can harm us if we be followers of that which is good? We may be thought fools by fools if we are firm in our integrity; but in the place where judgment is infallible we shall be approved.
[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]
