Jesus wants A Few Good Men

Written by Greg Ryan

(Courtroom scene) Tom Cruise (Kaffee) (prosecuting attorney) ďI WANT THE TRUTH!Ē

Jack Nicholson (Col. Jessup) (marine cornel) YOU CANíT HANDLE THE TRUTH Ö.Son, we live a world that has walls and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have more responsibility here than you could possibly fathom. You curserepparttar marines. You have that luxury. You have that luxury of not knowing what I know. And that my existence as grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. I know down deep in places you donít want to talk about, you donít want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like HONOR, CODE, and LOYALTY. We use these words asrepparttar 148414 very backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neitherrepparttar 148415 time norrepparttar 148416 inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps underrepparttar 148417 blanket ofrepparttar 148418 very freedom I provide. I prefer you to just say thank you and go on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand to post. Either way, I donít give a crap what you think you are entitled to!Ē (end of scene)

You will not be able to find more honorable, loyal and mentally strong people on this earth than a United States Marine. Their very COR values of why they exist stands on a firm foundation of; Honor, Loyalty and Strength. If you want anyone on your side and on top of that wall it would be a Marine. No matter whatrepparttar 148419 mission itísrepparttar 148420 marines that arerepparttar 148421 first ones in andrepparttar 148422 last ones to leave. If you happen to ask any marine why they do what they do? All of them would say, ďItís not about politics, pride, or pillage.Ē They would say, ďItís aboutrepparttar 148423 man standing beside me every day in battle. They arerepparttar 148424 ones I do it for.Ē

Years ago we lived in a world with fewer choices, not as many worries and words spoken with more encouragement and meaning behind them. And with that came Honor in what we had, Truth inrepparttar 148425 words we used and Loyalty torepparttar 148426 ones we loved. Today we live in a world full of businesses, stress of unbearable proportions, and words sugar coated in order to please everyone including ďBarneyĒrepparttar 148427 dog. Today we live in a world where pride in our values, love for our creator, and words of love for others are all but spoken behind closed doors.

Jesus the Great Teacher --Lessons Learned

Written by Greg Ryan

I donít know of anyone who really liked taking tests in school if you did there is something seriously wrong with you. It just seemed as though some breezed through while people like myself always struggled. Life is not fair!!!! Some call it tests anxiety. I think I just concentrated on trying not to getrepparttar answer wrong instead of relaxing and allowing my brain to findrepparttar 148413 answer in my head. Most timesrepparttar 148414 next day I could do better because of no pressure. Second golf shots are like that too! So when I received my test scores back all I noticed wererepparttar 148415 red marks and disappointments instead of how many right answers I had out of one hundred. Having said that, perfect test scores were few and far between for most of us I think.

Life at times gives us impromptu tests that atrepparttar 148416 time we think we have fail in our minds. In other words, when all said and done our nature is to focus on what we did wrong and our imperfections and notrepparttar 148417 opportunity for growth that is in front of us. Life is not about perfect papers itís about learning fromrepparttar 148418 red marks. Yet, in most experiences lessons can be learned from those moments.

Jesus was a great teacher. Inrepparttar 148419 bible there are thirty-nine parables in which Jesus teaches us through life
