It’s simple things. Too often overlooked things. But without them there is no greatness in people. Without greatness in people there is not greatness in a nation.
With these simple things, even the simplest among us demonstrates greatness.
Here is a sampling of these simple things:
Stop lying and speak the truth.
Control your emotions, especially anger, and do not allow them to move you to wrong doing.
Don’t take nor destroy another’s property.
Do good work so you can have something to share with others.
Let the words that come out of your mouth be wholesome, good and beneficial to those who hear them.
Get rid of all bitterness, wrath, anger, and talking bad about others in yourself.
Be kind, tender-hearted and forgiving.
Be imitators of God and walk in love.
Don’t allow self-centeredness, immorality nor greed ever be a part of your life.
Evaluate everything in light of God’s truth.
