270. Anyway

In the devotions I do each morning I came upon this today. I’ve read it before but somehow it struck home a little bit more today. The last two lines are the clincher lines.

People are unreasonable, illogical,

and self-centered;

forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you

of selfishness, of ulterior motives;

be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some

false friends and some true enemies;

be successful anyway.

What you spend years building,

someone will destroy overnight;

build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,

others 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 world your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.

Prayer found on the wall of Teresa of Calcutta’s room.
