GALLAGHER’S LAW–From One of the People I’ve Met…

Written by William Pauwels on January 1, 2015

Of all the people you meet in 2015 (and in your lifetime) . . .

— 25% will not like you no matter what you do;

— 25% will not like you, but could be enticed to change their mind;

— 25% will like you, but could change their mind;

— And 25% will like you no matter what you do.

Thankfully, the Lord Jesus falls into the last category.

A fellow I met years ago mentioned this to me: “If it looks good it usually gets better; if it looks bad it usually gets worse.”

Of all the laws to live by, this one – first introduced to me by Bob Gallagher – has proved to be profound. Whether it’s a new restaurant, a new recruit, your daughter’s new boyfriend, the town’s new mayor, or even a new President . . . Gallagher’s Law is, more often than not, invincible.

If you haven’t been applying a de facto Gallagher’s Law in your life, you might want to put it into practice in 2015. You’ll be amazed at how many good decisions you’ll quickly make . . . and how many bad ones you’ll quickly avoid.

In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote the truth and a better way – to protect our freedom and interests – and to defend the Judeo-Christian American-Way.
