Which would YOU choose?

HOW WOULD YOU NUMBER THESE IN LEVEL OF IMPORTANCE TO YOU?  OR WHICH DO YOU FIND MOST IMPORTANT YOU OR A HEALTHY, HAPPY SOCIETY?

WAS THERE SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY WHO HAD A WONDERFUL ABUNDANCE OF THESE THINGS?   ANY PUBLIC PERSON YOU FEEL REALLY ENCOMPASSED SOME OF THESE WELL?

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU COULD HAVE MORE OF?

  1. Manners have hidden many a scoundrel.
    Integrity is just being focused and not two faced. Can still describe a scoundrel.
    I’ll take Love above them all.
    Agape love. Sacrificial love.
    But love that brings character, morals, integrity, patience, character, respect, etc.
    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that those that believe on Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    Pretty powerful stuff.

    If only everyone, even gender unbalanced people followed the Boy Scout Codes.

    Otherwise I’d label them all as # 1

    ED…thanks. Integrity is defined on line as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.” I know you and I both find that REALLY important.

    God’s love does encourage those traits you wrote above, for sure.

    LOVE is probably #1 but not loving a friend or lover, etc….LOVE of God, feeling loved by God, is something which changes us to the better, for sure!

    KID…. funny you’d mention the Boy Scout oath because I heard it on TV the other night and thought “That says it all!” it IS a good one, for sure….all mentioned are #1 in my book, too!!!

    I THINK CHARACTER encompasses a lot of those in the list I’d found….with good CHARACTER, the others fall in place.

    Downstairs somewhere is my father’s list of things he found the most important. I will find it and type it here soon.

    THanks, Ed and KID!

    Originally I was thinking the exact thing Kid wrote…..all 10 you put first. Then I read Ed’s post about love and thought about what HE says about love (not Ed…the BIG HE).
    Its gotta be Love.

    Character and integrity, which I kind of see as the same thing, top my list. All good. I personally would take more Love – or even the memory of what love feels like. Or the hope that I will know it again. That list is my mother imperfectly. Jesus Christ perfectly. And you, Dear Z!

    Loved that long forgotten Boy Scout oath, Kid. And still a fan of Charles Murray’s observations on the 4 pillars of American society’s success:
    1. Industriousness
    2. Honesty
    3. Marriage
    4. Religiosity

    Kid, shows the value of early aphorisms. Think of Ben Franklin’s list! I shudder when I think of what deeply ingrained garbage is rotting the souls of so many now. Can you imagine if that oath said: On my honor I will do my best to eradicate Christian influences from our laws and culture, to dissolve our republic, use whatever means I can to destroy those who disagree with me and to blame others when my mind, body and spirit go awry.

    Here ya go Z..

    What we didn’t know was our school mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent to our parents. The teachers were unionized and they were all in on it. Our parents didn’t even list us overdue for the whole day. Very first recess, Biden comes cruisin’. So we formed ourselves into tight groups and the idea was, Biden comes to the nearest girl and she starts poundin’ and hollerin’ and screamin’. Sometimes Biden would go away. Sometimes he wouldn’t go away. Sometimes that Biden, he looks right into ya, right into your eyes. Y’know, the thing about a Biden, he’s got lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll’s eyes. When he comes after ya, he doesn’t seem to be livin’ until he grabs ya, and those black eyes roll over white, and then aww, then you hear that girl and the terrible high-pitch screamin’, the classroom seems to go black as you begin to faint, and in spite of all the poundin’ and the hollerin’, Biden keeps comin grabbing girl after girl.
    First recess, 8 girls were molested. I don’t know how many times he grabbed em, maybe a thousand. I don’t know how many. Biden averaged six an hour. Five O’clock that day, Mr. Hooper, a Good cop saw us running around screamin through the classroom window. He called in the Project Veritas guys. You could tell Biden saw em, he started looking real nervous and the secret service guys too. You know, that was the time I was most frightened waitin’ for Biden to get scared enough to leave. I’ll never go into a public school again. So, eleven hundred girls went in the school, three hundred and sixteen girls come out with their under clothes still on and Biden got the rest,

    Reference if you havent’ seen the movie Jaws.
