I Dare You
I dare you to live in an upright way the life that before
you spans, to give of your best in all that you do and follow your conscience commands.
I dare you to speak as a gentleman should in your dealings
with those you meet, for a man can be judged by the way he talks to the man he meets on the street.
I dare you to give to those in need, to share your strength
and your time, for in giving and sharing you gain new hope for the world and all mankind.
I dare you to choose the kind of friends that can lead you
when life seems vain, for one that can lead when the road is rough is a friend who will always remain.
I dare you to always be honest and fair, to be truthful
in all that you say, for a friend may be won or a friend may be lost in your dealings with him today.
I dare you to walk with the Master, to follow the life that
he led, for in Him you will find real meaning for the days that still lie ahead.
I dare you to always live your life so that others might
catch a glow, and use your life as a beacon as through their life they go.
