It must happen IN you before it can happen THROUGH you! (Timothy Kight, Elementary school teacher)
This is an important lesson for adults as well as children. After all, what you ARE is more important than what you DO. Why? Because what you are determines what you do and what you do shows what you are. Is that so hard to understand? Preparing yourself intellectually and spiritually is essential to living a life of value and purpose.
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7).
