Lessons I Learned from My Dad (3)

My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment.
                                  —Proverbs 3:21

A few more lessons I learned from my dad.

I learned that . . .

I shouldn’t let the attitudes and actions of others govern my behavior.

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.

The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge.

The person who angers me controls me.

The only people I should try to get even with are those who have helped me.

If I will put myself in another person’s place, I will be less likely to want to put them in their place.

Judging others is not my right.

I should think all I speak, but shouldn’t speak all I think.

I don’t have to explain something I haven’t said.

You will become what you think about.
