A Lesson from Dad

I was recently asked, “What do you remember your father teaching you?”  The one lesson that stands out above all of the others that I have learned from my father is his often repeated saying, “Steve, I will never ask you to do what I haven’t done first, or what I am not willing to do myself.”

Throughout the years, I have found this to be true of him. He never required of me what he didn’t first model himself. For this I am thankful. May this be true of me as well.
