One of my friends on Facebook posted these words, which are attributed to the late and amazing Mother Teresa. I, myself, needed encouragement this week, and these words were timely, straight from the Lord. May this passage bless all who read it. And pass it on for others! These are truly words to live by.
People are often unreasonable and selfish. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it was between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
