Realize this: No matter what you say and how you say it, SOME people will never get it.
That’s not your fault!
No matter how pure your motives SOMEBODY will still accuse you of ill intentions.
Stay pure anyway.
No matter how humble you are, somebody will still consider you proud. Stay humble, anyway.
No matter how generous you are, somebody will still call you “selfish”. Remain generous, anyway.
Sometimes some of your greatest pains will come from those you gave the most pleasure. Keep giving anyway.
Some of your greatest disappointments will come from those you gave your best appointments or commitments. Remain committed still.
Sometimes some of the worst things you’d hear about yourself may come from those you speak the best of. Speak well of others still.
Not everyone in your ship is paddling in the direction of your dreamed destination. Discernment is key. Keep your vision alive still.
Loving people sometimes means feeling used by them. Keep loving anyway.
Sometimes, doing the right thing ends up making you look like a fool. Keep doing right anyway.
Tough as it seems, any evil done against you can become a seed for your promotion… It depends on your response. Keep doing good anyway.
I would rather appear foolish now and see the wisdom of the Almighty God unfold, than appear wise now and turn out a fool later. Trust in God with all your heart still!
Promotion doesn’t come by fighting for your rights but by being faithful in doing what is right. Remain faithful in all things still.
Those who will enjoy true promotion by the Almighty must be willing to forgive freely, forgive quickly and forgive wholly. Appropriate God’s leadership in all areas of your life still.
Those who will relish true promotion must be willing to serve many for free and selflessly.
Read with caution: Sometimes, to see the positive things Almighty God can do for you, then you have to be willing to stop what you can do in offending Him. Obey God implicitly.
Without God’s sign off, your biggest step can turn out to be your biggest mistake. Seek God’s will in everything.
Pain has a higher potential to toughen you up than pleasure does. Persevere through pain anyway.
Problems are easier to solve than people. Love people still.
Many people will celebrate you only as long as your advancement doesn’t exceed their expectations of you. Advance still.
Some people get close enough to you just to find something bad about you to broadcast to the world. Be friendly anyway.
Some people are quiet when you’re succeeding but quick to point out your failures. Succeed still!
Hating those who hate you makes them your leaders, since you’re following their footsteps. Lead yourself and others.
Rather than react to a negative situation. Respond to your revelation.
Believe the best even when you’re going through the worst. Keep faith and hope alive still.
They hurt you? Don’t hold it against them. Hold them up in prayer. They do not know what they are doing.
Forgiving people is not just a good idea. It’s a GOD’s idea. Actually, more than an idea. It’s an instruction. Forgive anyway.
How you respond to a situation can be more important than the situation. Remember to respond, NOT react.
Your ability to overlook an offence determines the degree of dominion you’d exercise over many other things. Self control is a great virtue. Proverbs 16:32
Wisdom will help you solve problems. A large heart will help you accommodate people. You need both. Amen.
When all is said and done, let the fear and the love of the Almighty GOD in your heart pour through your daily walk!
