Do good anyway ~ Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa, epitome of God’s heart of love, kindness, unselfishness, and goodness.
Here are some beautiful words by Mother Teresa that I found on another blog, Catholic Teacher Musings.

I want to reflect on them today on the National Day of Prayer.

“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, there may be jealousy; 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. ”
