STOP AND THINK – The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love, and loyalty. (Zig Ziglar, late motivational speaker)
We should ask ourselves, “How many of those six ‘foundation stones’ are characteristic of my behavior and attitudes?” It might be said that five of them are a pretty good definition of the other one, character. The person, who is honest, demonstrates integrity and loyalty, and practices faith and love would certainly be recognized as a person of sterling character.
The proverbs of Solomon [are] … for gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair. (Proverbs 1:1-3)
