Very true

My Granddaughter Naomi has a signature on her email which says, "character is what you do when no one is watching. This is so true. I often hear the joke where people say I never saw a Hearse with a UHaul behind it. Meaning you cannot take it with you. No matter how much money, or diamonds, or property you have, you cannot take them with you when you go. When you stand before that judgement throne the only thing you will have brought with you is your character.
I don't know where it is but there is a verse in the bible which says everything that is secret will someday be revealed. We are only kidding ourselves when we think something we do behind closed doors will be kept a secret, we all live in the same world, and the whole world is planned and controlled by God, and he says our character will be judged and our secrets will be revealed.
I sometimes find myself responsible for other peoples money or assets. I think that if I were a person of little character I would think I could get away with something and no one would know. You can trust a person who is of good character, you could leave your money or assets right on the table and walk away, when you come back they would still sit on the table where you left them. The fact that no one is watching is not a factor. Because character is what you do when no one is watching.

No big deal

All there is on the tv is the Barack Obama issue and the rant of his pastor against the United States. I don't see the problem as to what he will do now that the antics of his pastor have been made known.
He should do whatever he wants to do, if he wants to swear allegiance to this man and his hatred for the United States, do it, but certainly he should not be running for the office of President of the United States if he supports that hatred for the country. I have heard many times on the media about how little we know about the man. We are learning fast, with the talk about association with Farakahn and trips to Tripoli, how much more do we need to know. How foolish could we be to elect this man to the most powerful office in the country.
