People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If your 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.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, there may be jealousy.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
Be good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
Kent M. Keith
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
