Good Advice from Mother Theresa

By on April 27, 2008

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered.

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 is between you and God.

It never was between you and them anyway.”

~ Mother Theresa ~

I love this.

The quote also reminds me of Corinthians when it says “I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

I must remind myself that God is there with the power and grace to make it perfect when other’s want to bring me down or when I want to bring other’s down. And…there’s nothing wrong with perfect! It’s a journey probably worth taking, and I should remind myself of that more often!
