Motivational Thought of the Moment - Love the Greatest Motivator

Unconditional love is the most important of all motivational factors in life.  "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails."  1 Corinthians 13:7, 8.  Love keeps you going when all else fails.  It overcomes intolerance, fear, poverty, ignorance, pride, fear, discouragement, adversity, indifference, persecution and even death.  Love truly conquers all.  "For the love of Christ constrains us."  2 Corinthians 5:14. Christ, Who is by far the greatest Motivator forever, gave the greatest love the world has ever known, and ever will know.  His love has been the inspiration and motivation for the greatest acts of self-sacrifice, altruism and beneficence of humanity toward humanity.  "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die:  yet pera…

Precepts for a Successful Life

True success is not measured temporally but by spiritual endowments.  Here are some precepts for a successful life:

Love all people, always, at all times, with all that you have.

Unselfishly seek to be the greatest good for the greatest amount of people possible.

Keep your vision above the stars and your feet firmly upon the ground.

Share all of your gifts unstintingly and unconditionally with all who would cheerfully receive them.  Pray for those who fail to recognize and appreciate them. 

Everyone born on this planet has the potential for great good.  Look for the good in everyone and everything, and you will find it.  Don't go looking for the evil, for that search will be rewarded in infinitude.

Live your life as one who shall have to make a reckoning with the Sovereign God at the end.  May you be able to say then, "I have fulfilled your will for my life," so that you shall receive His eternal approbation:  "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."


Motivational Moment - Keep on Running

Do your best imitation of U. S. Olympic sprinter Manteo Mitchell, who ran his leg of the men's 4x400 relay - on a broken leg.  Most of us would have given up because of such an injury and setback.  But Mitchell willed himself to keep on running in spite of his circumstances and made it to the finish line!  Let's all be encouraged to keep on running the race of life, no matter what!  Despite adversity and opposition, keep on running.  Despite the toil and the pain, keep on running.  Despite setbacks and snares, keep on running.  Keep your mind focused on the goal and don't stop until you've reached it.  Don't deny your struggles, but embrace them and endure all things, believe all things, hope all things.  Your humanity may give out; but don't let your Spirit give in.  Keep on running, for "I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength."  Philippians 4:19.
