Creed or Code of Conduct:
No matter how controversial, no matter the consequence, Lord, help me keep the commitment to have the courage to do what is right!
Always seek to do what is right. With every decision, make a conscious effort to do the right thing. Frequently we have to choose between a more difficult right or an easier wrong. The right decisions pay big dividends!
Success to Significance:
“All success is secular, all significance is spiritual.” Roger Ingvalson. My thoughts about success and significance are: Any time we affect a positive change in someone’s life, we are successful. More importantly, any time we affect a positive spiritual change in someone’s life, we attain significance.
