I enjoy helping people. I am an encourager and I can see the good in others. I want people to understand what it means to be an authentic Christian and not just a religious "nut." I believe if Christians lived and loved others as Jesus lived and loved others, we would experience more of heaven on earth than hell on earth. These thoughts and writings are intended to encourage you to be who God originally designed you to be. They are also intended to challenge you and make you think. Also, I want you to know that I'm praying for you every day. Blessings, Murphy Blessings to you, Murphy

If We Only Had More Of...

THE FOLLOWING QUALITIES:

Loyalty

Duty

Respect

Selfless-Service

Honor

Integrity

Personal Courage


THE FOLLOWING ETHICS:

I will always place the mission first.

I will never accept defeat.

I will never quit.

I will never leave a fallen comrade.


These were taken from a medal my nephew received while he was in basic training at Fort Bragg, Georgia. James is a sergeant in the Louisiana National Guard. He has served one tour of duty in Baghdad, Iraq for 15 months.

Don't you wish Christians would aspire to live out these character qualities and ethical values? I do. As an exercise in reflection, take each one and meditate on them and see what the Lord tells you about how well you express them in your own life.

Muchly,
Murphy
