...Free and Accepted Masons are taught to make use of it for the more noble and glorious purpose of spreading the cement of brotherly love and affection; that cement which unites us into one sacred band, or society of friends and brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble contention, or rather emulation, of who can best work and best agree.
No idle words spoken above.
This working tool needs to be put to work today more than ever.
Your Lodge, your community and your country need great men of action.
Throughout history there have been countless examples of Freemasons making a difference.
Now that you are one,
I ask you to seriously contemplate this question:
What have I done for my lodge , my community and my country that has made a lasting difference?
Do you truly have a satisfying answer to that?
I challenge you at your next Lodge meeting
to call on your Brothers,
with whom you can best work and agree,
to make a plan
then take actions
that produce results.
Make it a Knight's quest that you will not rest until it is done.
Do something that
you can sincerely be proud of
when answering all three parts of the question above.
You have a talent that the Grand Architect has blessed you with.
Take that talent and make use of it for that glorious purpose for which it was intended.
The Great Temple did not build itself, it took action!
