Good Morning Leaders!

I TRULY enjoy the whole of my dutiful Calling here and yet one of the tasks that really excites me is the monthly Instructor Ethics Brief! It’s the time in which I present the rhyme and reason for the “Center of Gravity” (Instructor Pilots) to remain above reproach in personal and professional character as key family members!  During last week’s brief, God moved me in such a way as to say, ‘You’re here to shape generations of Officers that Aviate so serve with a Reproducing Person’s mind-frame. Live and instruct in an attractive manner that causes others to model you motivatedly!’ (Sic)

According to the Christian faith, that same pretense was presented to Jesus’ Disciples as He was briefing their life mission in His departing absence. He’d spent the last 3.5 years attractively modeling the lifestyle by which their lives were to replicate so that others would be enticed by The Way of Godliness!  So it was His time to pass on the humbled task of shaping and instructing the next generation(s) as Reproducing People; with the implication that they’d first have to live attractively in a manner worthy of their Calling and profession.

roy2That’s my prayerful challenge this week for you and yours! That you live and lead with an attractiveness that results in you being a Reproducing Person!  One that has others desiring to model His likeness because of yours; be it in your home, office, community, church or elsewhere.  Keep Your Character Attractively Above Reproach as a Reproducing Person!

God Bless You Richly This Week!

roy3Matthew 28: 16-20 “But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’”
