Never, Never Give Up

Some words of wisdom that I am thankful for.........

"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, someone 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 your God; It was never between you and them anyway."
                                                                                - Mother Teresa

What beautiful examples of GRACE, LOVE, and PERSEVERANCE!  It is my hope that I too can live out these thoughts and pass them along to whomever I meet.  Never, never give up when it comes to doing good, to doing the right thing, to helping someone.  You may be the only person that has ever believed in them, the only encouraging word they have heard, or the only light they have seen.  Don't do good for the sake of being seen, do good for the Kingdom of God.  For His people, to help, to serve, to love.  Never, never give up.
