In a society that promotes the ‘entitlement’ mind set, what seems to be lacking is individuals who will do the right thing no matter the personal cost. We need more individuals who will be resolved and resilient in standing for truth and what’s right. People who won’t be bribed or bought out, who will put others before themselves, and who won’t cave into individuals or groups who threaten to make life miserable if you disagree with them or don’t give them what they want. We need individuals who don’t think too highly of themselves and aren’t afraid of obstacles and challenges. Individuals who aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd and be in the minority. Living like this won’t make you popular, famous, or rich; but living a life of integrity and character is much more valuable than gaining notoriety.
We embrace the underdog mentality for all the overlooked and undervalued in life.
He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.
Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
Save, O Lord, for the godly one is gone; for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man. Everyone utters lies to his neighbor; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak….
On every side the wicked prowl, as vileness is exalted among the children of man.
O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill? He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend, in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but who honors those who fear the Lord; who swears to his own hurt and does not change; who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.
