Eyes to See
Pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith in God.
Humility: accepting ourselves and others just as we are—with limitations, vulnerabilities, and imperfections included—as equally valuable and beloved by God without having to prove our worth by what we accomplish, what we own, or what we do right.
Humility is about slipping underneath judgements by which we limit ourselves and one another to love and act fearlessly with power and authority.
Who Our Hearts Beat For
The older you get, the more you realize that it isn’t about the material things, or pride or ego. It’s about our hearts and who they beat for.
People are Often Unreasonable
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway, because in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
