It is Between You and God Anyway

June 24, 2013

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 best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
