Values last longer than financial gain or mere public recognition. (Jesse Deloe, writer and editor)
There’s little you can do to guarantee the safety of your financial investments. The stock market may rise, but now and then it falls, too. That’s like reputations sometimes. Fame is often very fleeting. The athlete may be praised highly for his or her achievement in one event and become the goat the next time around. So, hitch your wagon to lasting values.
If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. (1 Corinthians 3:18-19)
