Humility Builds Integrity

"It is our choices that show us who we truly are, far more than our abilities."

We can't all be good at everything.  I have recently been strongly encouraged to try lacrosse, and I have never had to be more humble.  My abilities in this sport are at a low level, and it is very hard for me to compete when I have no knowledge about it at all.  Above the pictures, the quote explains that our choices measure us greater than our abilities.  As long as we try, then we will be rewarded.  God didn't design for everyone to be good at everything.  He gave certain people different talents according to His plans for them.  He wants us to all help each other and build each other up through His name.  

"May you love abundantly, live abundantly, and leave a legacy rich with integrity."  (Lance Wubbels)

In order to leave a legacy, one must be humble while also being abundant with their treasures.  If one values things like money and objects, then integrity will end at a short path.  Although to value things like family, friends, love, and faith will ensure one a life so much more fulfilled with happiness and a greater legacy left behind.  If I respect my role models and learn from them, then I can understand why their legacy left such an impact in my life and develop the qualities that they implanted in my heart.  In conclusion, leaving a legacy takes work, but it is time well spent and will impact many people.
