Virtue of the Month

February 2017

LIFE IS SWEET when we are HONEST

“I try to be honest in every way, from the things that I do to the things that I say!  When I’m honest with others, it’s easy to see, they tend to be friendly and honest with me.” P.K. Hallinan

Honesty is the best policy—but not the cheapest.  If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”   Mark Twain

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in TRUTH.
                                                                                                                        
1 John 3:18 –Jesus

LIFE IS SWEET when we are RESPECTFUL!  That’s our virtue for the month of January!

I found this acrostic that does an awesome job in explaining what R-E-S-P-E-C-T is all about:

 R RESPOND      When someone speaks to you, answer them politely and look them in
                            the eyes.

E EXAMPLE       Respect yourself by being the best you can be.  You never know who is
                           watching, so make sure you are reflecting who you are.

S – SPEAK            Instead of pouting or whining, use words that will help you express your
                            concerns or frustrations.

P PROPERTY    Take care of other people’s things.  If you use something, make sure
                         
you return it in better condition than which you received it.

E – EARN             We appreciate what we have more when we work for it.  You won’t
                           get
everything you want, but you can work hard to earn it.

CCARE             Think about how your actions will affect others.  Make choices that
                           show your care and concern for others.

TTRY                Every day is a new chance to be obedient, kind, and respectful.  Forgive
                           yourself and others when you make a mistake and always, always keep
                           trying!
