Nothing comes for free. One must earn everything in life, and that's especially true for leaders. Having a title is meaningless if you can't show others how and why you earned the title.

You've got that so right. Once you've started earning, you have to keep earning it... Every day is a test. Earning trust and respect is a fulltime job as a leader! Have a great evening Jack! Thank you!

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. Some people mistakenly believe that they can earn their salvation, via good works, when in truth they can only earn a one way ticket to a very hot place for eternity. Have a blessed day today and always.
