If You Don’t Stand…. – Saying Saturday 5/6/17

“If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.” By Gordon B. Hinkley and Malcolm X. This picture brings to mind Dr. Suess’s story called The Sneetches. There were plain-belly sneetches and star-belly sneetches. The star-bellied made the plain-belied feel excluded. It ends up, all the sneetches spend all their money and time trying to be better than each other, and have the latest thing. (Sound familiar?) They were not rooted in anything so they fell for every new trend that came along. (If you haven’t read or seen it, do, there’s a good lesson within.) You and I need to decide now what our North star will be, so we have our moral compasses set strong. Did we build our figurative foundation on the rock or the sand? When the winds of change bluster and blow towards us, we won’t sway, because we have previously chosen what we will stand for. We will hold firm to the standards we have chosen to live by. Good idea? (I will not sink there in a boat, I will not sink there in a moat! Kim I am. Kim I am. They will not sink me Kim I am!”)
