Ten Reasons to Become a Mason

Some of the members in Iowa were asked why a man should be a Mason and here are 10 Reasons that were given:

  1.   A place where you can confidently trust every person and trust your family with them also.
  2.   A place where, within moral and civil guidelines; free thought, free speaking and the spiritual growth of man, can grow into its fullest potential.
  3.   A place to meet outstanding individuals from all walks of life, that a person would not otherwise have had the opportunity to know and call brother.
  4.   A place to be part of an organization which has for its principal tenets ­ Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
  5.   A place that provides self-development opportunities, leadership training and experience, and to improve public speaking skills.
  6.   A place you can go to seek support as well as give it.
  7.   A place where moral virtues are taught and through these teachings a regular reinforcement of the moral virtues is experienced.
  8.   A place to spend time with a group of brothers, who by acting as good men, make me want to become a better man.  Not better than others, but better than I would have otherwise been.
  9.   A place to become better equipped to serve Church and community.
  10.   A place to meet with established members of the community and to become a part of the community.
