Spreading the “Good News,” preaching what is right, counselling, and providing guidance to people from all walks of life. All of these are “good” things; and it is what everyone needs today to lessen the impact of world poverty, war, affliction, sickness, discrimination, and political abuse.

But remember, all talk without responsible action is more detrimental than doing nothing at all. Why? Because if you are not going to “walk the walk,” then all you do is bring up false hopes and empty promises! Failing people’s expectations makes them lose hope and increase despair. Despair is a trigger to commit wrongful acts because of immediate needs; which in turn, lead to more conflict.

Not to pinpoint politicians in time of election, or even persons of authority, but make sure that if you plan to do goodwill (or promise assistance) to others --- do it because it comes from the heart and it is what’s best, and not just a means to an end.
Inspiring people to do good and what is right can be the foundation of change. And words, in all their simplicity and intricate meanings, can easily be the catalyst that will drive people to care and do more for others rather than petty self-interests.
Here are some “words of wisdom” that has spanned the ages. Some of them you may already know from past experiences; while others might be new and would be good food for thought.
