Character: doing the right thing even when no one is looking.

by Lori
(Virginia, USA)

Taken from a poster that I saw in the hallway of a school, it is self-explanatory, but serves to remind everyone that we have a responsibility to do the right thing...even when mom and dad (or in my case, the kids) aren't around to see us. The way to build trust is to exhibit good character.


Note from Belinda
We have added to this great one liner the Scripture

Colossians 3:23-24
Whatever yo do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.


This reminds the children that even though no-one is watching, God always sees.

Thanks for sharing Lori

Doing it Right
by: Kela

"Do what's right because it's right". That is another quote that I like along the same lines.
The thing that convicts me is; how are my children going to know what the right thing is if I don't show them by example and by the Scripture what the right thing is?

My mother would always tell me that people are going to do what they want to anyway, so why try to persuade them. I agreed with her until I became a Christ-follower. Most people don't know any other way to go unless someone tries to show them the right way to go.

Only a well informed person can make the right decision even when no one is looking.
