Today as we take time to honor our Presidents, here are some words of wisdom from our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln:
Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.
It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who made him.
We thank God today for Great Leaders of our country who have helped build a nation with vision, character, love, perseverance, justice, and trust in God.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
