Lynn G Robbins - Be 100 Percent Responsible

Being 100 percent responsible is accepting yourself as the person in control of your life. If others are at fault and need to change before further progress is made, then you are at their mercy and they are in control over the positive outcomes or desired results in your life.

Lynn G. Robbins - Avoid It

If life hasn’t yet taught you the wisdom of the proverb I am about to share, it would be my prayer that by the end of my remarks it will have enlightened your understanding and touched your hearts sufficiently to motivate you to make some helpful and wise changes in your life. Here is the proverb: “Enter not into the path of the wicked. . . . Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.”  2 The wisdom of Solomon in this passage is to be discovered in the word  avoid.  Solomon had discovered, as all wise people do, one of life’s most helpful guiding principles:  It is easier to avoid temptation than it is to resist temptation.
