Thirty True Things

Thirty True Things

These are not necessarily, “the” thirty truest things, but I believe them all to be true. What do you think?
30. Every boy needs a dog.
29. God gives you only enough good shots in golf to keep you coming back.
28. Insanity is continuing to do the exact same thing, but expecting different results.
27. Failing at times is assured, but being a “failure” is a decision you make.
26. We should spend a lot of time visiting with our grandparents while we have them.
25. Death of a loved one feels deeply wrong and unnatural, and that is because it was never intended to begin with.
24. Words, not just sticks and stones, can hurt.
23. People should be judged on the content of their character, not their color.
22. God has a sense of humor. (Consider the duck-billed platypus, or the way you wore your hair at senior prom.)
21. There are no dead atheists.
20. The suicide rate among the poor will never catch up with that of the rich.
19. Fathers should help support the children they help make.
18. Insurance companies don’t seem to like to pay claims.
17. Contrary to poplar belief, not all lawyers are crooked.
16. Only true Christianity through faith in Jesus offers forgiveness and a right relationship to God, forever.
15. Camping makes you appreciate the outdoors while there, and the indoors when you return home.
14. Debt is a curse, not a blessing, and one does not have to live with a car note forever.
13. Love people, use things; never the other way around.
12. You just can’t make everybody happy.
11. Feed a man a fish, you feed him for a day; teach him to fish, you feed him for lifetime.
10. If you shall not work, neither should you eat. (Notice it is “shall not”, not “cannot.”)
9. Kids can help out with small chores at age 3, and more thereafter; and should always say “Sir” and “Ma’am.”
8. There is always one person at every execution...the mother.
7. Macs are just better computers than PCs.
6. Placing a child for adoption is an act of love, not abandonment.
5. Abortion kills children.
4. Parenting is the most important job in the world.
3. Love is best lived out, and should be said on a daily basis.
2. No one, on his deathbed, ever wished he had spent more time at the office.
1. There is nothing all that wrong with this old world, it’s just the people in it.
