Refuse Corruption – Wise Words Wednesday
“Seriously, everyone is doing it.” “No one cares of I do it.” “Really, what will it hurt?” “They are all bad. Do you really think we can change them?” “It’s just on the news. Does it really affect me?”
While these are all fine questions, they are also means for corruption to enter into our lives. Accepting corruption fertilizes its growth and feeds its power. “Refuse to let the world corrupt you.”
The morning news makes me angry. They infuriate me with their story choices.
Why is it so necessary to start our day hearing and seeing violence, destruction, and upheaval among the human race?
I guess it sells ads and gets ratings, but maybe it is corruption’s way of daring us to become complacent or uncaring.
Well, this is your Intentergy double dog dare to not become complacent and uncaring!!!
(This does not mean I let my kids watch the police brutality videos or the clips of the bombing victims in Syria.)
Here is my challenge for you.
Do not allow the media to desensitize you.
Do not allow yourself to think you are above the law or regulations established for the protection of our communities.
Do not allow corruption to be an accepted part of your daily routine.
Refuse to turn away from those in need.
Refuse to let your light of kindness and decency be diminished.
Refuse to let what others think change who you are or what you believe to be right.
Be the change that this world needs. Do not let corruption take hold.
“Refuse to let the world corrupt you.”

P.S. I believe we all have the power to overcome corruption. We just can’t overcome it all alone. Refuse to let the world corrupt you.
