The Be-attitudes of Brotherhood By Brother Stone
Be attitude #2
This is probably the most important mark of true brother. It is the very essense of being a firefighter.
We willingly place ourselves in danger to help complete strangers. How much more should we do for those we live and work with?
Every great firefighter and leader lives by this trait. We should strive to suppress our own desires for self advancement and TRAIN ourselves to think of others FIRST.
Perhaps a quote from the best selling book in history can sum it up…
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” John 15:13.
If you apply this one Be-attitude great things are guaranteed for you and your career; but like anything of great value it is not easy.
Stay strong brothers and do the right thing, one day at a time!
Keep brotherhood alive through you!
