There Are Soaring Spiritual Values
Somewhere in the background of the great fundraisers, in their early childhoods, there was a value system. Every single one spoke to me about this.
In growing up, the values that were instilled in them were both stringent and joyful. It drove their lives, as the Psalmist says, “giving voice as crashing cymbals.”
Church and prayer were a part of their early days for most of them. But not all. Not all of the great fundraisers were “churchy” people. But all demonstrate spiritual values that infuse others with trust and confidence.
Emerson said it all. He wrote that a person with spiritual values is, “filled with zeal, fired with enthusiasm, and always go beyond what they thought once to be impossible.”
