” The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home”

~ Confusius ( doesn’t seem confused to me 🙈)

I know I say this about every quote I publish, but I love this quote! 

What is integrity? 

To me, integrity is doing the right thing when nobody’s watching, it is doing what needs to be done based on principle and not on personal gain.

You agree? (Feel free to drop a comment and tell what it means to you.)

If we look around, how strong are our nations? I can tell you that mine is losing the trust of its people as the days go by. We’re constantly hearing of the bribery, fraud and corruption that’s going on in and with our government. The number of married people having affairs are on the rise. Kids are being kidnapped, cars are being hijacked, people are being killed for what’s rightfully theirs. Businesses are overcharging and under delivering. Service in general is just on the decrease.

If we all practice integrity and Inturn teach our young and loved ones by our actions, people would be doing the right thing always or atleast most of the time. We wouldn’t have as much of the stresses that we’re facing today and life would just have one less thing to deal with.

Whilst it would be rather utopian to think this is as simple as night and day, as we know the devil is a liar and is always lurking around,  I believe we can reduce this significantly and just like everything else, it starts with you and I.

So let’s do the right thing always, let’s do what’s fair based on principle and not on personal gain. Not only will we strengthen our nation, but God will be pleased with us as well!

It is sometimes so easy to get influenced by the wrong things, the wordly things. It sometimes happens so quickly that you yourself aren’t even aware.

I think this has something to do with how superficial our societies have become. I firmly believe it takes a village to raise a kid and so when the standards of a village/ society drop, It will definitely affect the kids it produces.

I came accross this quote and just smiled, felt like God spoke to me through these words. 

The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.

~ the legend himself: Bob Marley 

This is what I’m striving to become; A force that influences people positively.

I want to be remembered for my character and not for or by the number of cars I will drive, the clothes that I wear or the house that I live in.

It can sometimes be so difficult swimming against the current, but I believe that doing the right thing wasn’t ever meant to be easy. #challengeyourself

May the almighty make it easy for us to strive towards all that’s good. By his will and permission 🙏🏼
