Anyway

The poem below was reportedly written on the wall of Mother Teresa’s home for children in Calcutta. 

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;

forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;

succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, some could destroy overnight;

build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;

it was never between you and them anyway.

—Mother Teresa

Don’t Give Up

Gal6-9-Fall-InCourage

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.

A man reaps what he sows.

Whoever sows to please their flesh,

from the flesh will reap destruction;

whoever sows to please the Spirit,

from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 

Let us not become weary in doing good,

for at the proper time we will reap a harvest

if we do not give up. 

Therefore, as we have opportunity,

let us do good to all people,

especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

—Galatians 6:7-10
