    I Dare You To Be A Man Of Your Word

    I know of many people who talk a lot and have very little follow-thru. It’s very disheartening. A man is only as good as his word? There seems to be a lot of empty words out there…what does that say about people these days? No one believes in obligation, they are all simple...

    Some People Talk The Talk, But Don't Walk The Walk

    <-------(Not sure why it says "Words" there but it does not say that until I save my story.) Only God can judge the intentions of a person's heart. To be clear, when you say something to someone, that is an action. And that is what I judge people by, their chosen action(s).
