Leadership Thought Of The Day…

“Sometimes walking away has nothing do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth and value, but because we finally realize our own.” Robert Tew

Several years ago, Lincoln Young visited the Bible Institute and made reference to a book he was planning to write entitled Walking Away. The premise involved biblical references where individuals walked away.

The quote today is significant and stands on its own. We all need the strength to walk away from people or activities that call our Christian character into question.

When we understand we are God’s children, made in the image of God, our worth and value change incredibly.

Satan wants us to believe our worth and value are summed up in achieved success, what others say about us, and what we have materially. No greater lie exists.

We need to resist the temptation to find our worth and value in the temporal things of this life, realizing the greatness of our God makes our walking away from sin eternally worth it all.
