Stand Up, For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
Galatians 6:9-10 Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good.
A. No one is able to stand up indefinitely under the weight of carrying a grudge.
B. Your character is built on what you stand for, your reputation on what you fall for.
C. When a fellow is kicking, he has only one leg to stand on.
D. Go with the crowd and get lost; go with the Savior and you will stand alone.
E. It’s human to stand with the crowd; it is divine to stand alone.
F. Be bold in what you stand for, but be careful what you fall for.
G. To stand right with Christ, one must first learn to walk with Christ.
