Although many of us have probably heard it before, this piece attributed to Mother Teresa is worth a reminder as it illustrates a vibrant picture of what walking 'on earth as it is in heaven' looks like in working clothes -- it's just doing the right thing...anyway.
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 are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
~ Mother Teresa
