Wise Advice ...

David brought this to my attention today.  I really appreciated it, so I thought I'd post it here.

Wise Advice
from
Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu

 ( because it was never between you and them ) 
(a.k.a. 'mother teresa') 


 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 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.
 
I believe this is good ... only as long as you are doing it for the Lord and His glory.  All else is in vain.
