STOP AND THINK – Knowledge will give you power, but character respect. (Bruce Lee, marital artist and actor)
We must not discount the value of knowledge. We spend our lives learning, and the more we learn, the more capable we should be. Others would disagree with Lee, arguing that it’s not our knowledge but our character that gives us power. All would agree, without doubt, that the greatest respect you can earn is the result of integrity, character without reproach.
Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. (Titus 2:2)
