What is Class?

    • Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the knowledge that you can meet life head-on and handle whatever comes along.
    • Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past mistakes. 
    • Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are nothing more than a series of petty sacrifices. 
    • Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors or money. The most affluent blueblood can be totally without class while the descendant of a humble background may ooze class from every pore. 
    • Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is already up and need not strive to look better by making others look worse. 
    • Class can “walk with kings and keep its virtue, and walk with crowds and keep in common touch.” Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class – because he is comfortable with himself. 
    • If you have class, you don’t need much of anything else. If you don’t have it, no matter what else you have – it doesn’t make much difference.
     
    Psalm 126

     1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of[a] Zion,
       we were like those who dreamed.[b]
    2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
       our tongues with songs of joy.
    Then it was said among the nations,
       “The LORD has done great things for them.”
    3 The LORD has done great things for us,
       and we are filled with joy.

     4 Restore our fortunes,[c] LORD,
       like streams in the Negev.
    5 Those who sow with tears
       will reap with songs of joy.
    6 Those who go out weeping,
       carrying seed to sow,
    will return with songs of joy,
       carrying sheaves with them.
