There is no good you do that will not return to you or your loved ones in some way. Oftentimes, the people you have helped will not be the ones you can ever say thank you to. Instead, someone you have done nothing for will be the vessel that returns with your blessing. Never stop doing good, even if those you are there for aren’t there for you.
It’s not what others think of you that really matters. Ultimately, it’s what you think of yourself. The danger with that is when you don’t have a healthy personal perspective – whether you think too lowly or too highly of yourself. If you see yourself the way God sees you, you will ultimately be all that He created you to be.
A bad attitude can keep you down better and longer than any external force. Sadly, so few people take the time to check themselves.
Constantly making excuses for someone’s bad/atrocious behavior doesn’t show how understanding you are, but instead how gullible. When someone shows you who they really are…believe them.
Have a great day, everyone. Make the most of it no matter what! Each day, regardless of circumstances, is a gift.
When a person’s conscience is “dead”, they can do anything to anyone without losing a wink of sleep. The only time that conscience “re-awakens” is when they’re on the receiving end of a brutal misdeed such as what they’ve dished out. And that misdeed ultimately finds them. 😉
