Principles For Life #11

#11 >  I will always remain loyal to my God, my country, family and my friends.
The world we live in today is full of short term disposable material things. A major problem is that many people are also treating beliefs and relationships the same way.
If we don't like something or something someone else did, we are quick to judge and quick to dispose of that relationship.
If we want to do something that does not fit inside our spiritual beliefs, we may ignore those beliefs or look for some sort of loophole that we believe will allow us to go ahead and do what we want to do.
Some people will sacrifice their beliefs & personal relationships for things like temporary satisfaction, fortune and fame.
I can tell you from personal experiences, that the relationship you have with God and others, believing in the country you live in, plus doing what you can to make your country a better place for all who live in it, is priceless.
So when you are tempted to break your loyalty to someone, your country or with God, take a mental step back and dig deep to ask yourself.... Is it really worth it both short and long term?
And again... we reap what we sow. If you want others to be loyal to you (which most of do) you must also be loyal to others.
Best of success, Chuck Norris
