It’s our beliefs, desires and motives that lead us to the actions and behaviors we take in life. A person can be selfish in one moment, and giving the next; helpful to one person, and hateful to another; while respectful in one instance and disrespectful in another.
The reason we believe that it’s so important to Serve, Honor and Protect is because these three mindsets and actions are not only beneficial actions to take and ways to live, but they’re also beneficial to the one who performs them. For example, the person that gives, not only benefits the person that receives from them, but they also benefit from the life experience of giving and of having a positive impact on someone else’s life. They also benefit from creating opportunities for someone to give to them, as a result of the generosity they have shown to someone else.
To further express this, let’s quickly give 3 Reasons Why We Believe it’s so Important to Serve, Honor & Protect.
