Day 291: Scandalous Behavior

Day 291: Scandalous Behavior
October 18, 2014 Neil Kennedy

Proverbs 18:03

Doing wrong leads to disgrace, and scandalous behavior brings contempt.

Principle

Your gift may usher you into greatness, but a lack of character will escort you into obscurity.

It’s now in the playbook for young upstarts to use scandalous behavior to get attention. The scandal is plotted and schemed to promote their personality. So, character is no longer valued—becoming a caricature is—a distortion or foolish exaggeration. I find it embarrassing for them. The value infamy has become equal to being famous. Unfortunately, their foolish is being rewarded by this perverted culture.

It’s one thing to see a former child star-bursts through puberty and manipulate their fans into their trickery. It is another for grown men to use the same tactics.

Frankly, it’s disgusting and a sophomoric representation of manhood. Actors, music artist, politicians, and even some preachers are using scandalous behavior for personal gain. What is so disappointing is that many of these guys are gifted.

Your gift may usher you into greatness, but a lack of character will escort you into obscurity.

Let’s represent authentic manhood with integrity. We don’t need schemes to have influence. We do not want infamy—we want influence—influence based upon our character and governed by our convictions. That’s what it means to be a FivestarMan.

Remember:

Let’s represent authentic manhood.
