Drink, Steal, Swear & Lie
I met this guy who has a motto he lives by everyday. He said ‘ listen carefully and live by these 4 rules: drink, steal, swear, & lie.’ I was shaking my head ‘no’, but he then told me to listen while he explained his four rules. So here they are:
1. 1.’Drink’ from the ‘everlasting cup’ every day.
2. 2.’Steal’ a moment to help someone that is in worse shape than you are.
3. 3.’Swear’ that you will be a better person today than yesterday.
4. And last, but not least, when you ‘lie’ down at night, thank God you live in a country where you have religious freedom.
