Code of Conduct

We decided to sit down with the kids and talk about what characteristics describe a member of the Newell Nation. I hoped it would be a short, clear concise list but that is not turning out to be the case. Oh well…

  • Obey God and higher authorities the first time
  • Help people who are in need. Build homes. Provide food
  • Treat people they you want to be treated; be kind
  • Tell truth no matter the outcome
  • Do not cheat; Be fair
  • Only judge from a pure heart; we are all sinners in need of a savior
  • Be a good steward with the Lord’s Money: Give first, save next, spend latter
  • Tell people about Jesus
  • Slow speak, quick listen, and slow to get angry
  • Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Love never fails; love never gives up; love is kind; love is patient; love is not jealous.
  • Keep praying
  • Practice hospitality
  • Hold tightly to what is good
  • Never be lazy, but work hard and serve Lord enthusiastically

 

More to come.
