Finding goodness comes from loving in the right order and trusting in God’s mercy. I am so inclined to sin and weakness, But I want to show my love for You today. I long for my recompense to come only from You, not from people’s applause. I’m learning that it’s really just between You and me.
“It’s Between You and God.”
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.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight.
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 the best you have anyway.
Because in the final analysis, all of this is between you and God…
It was never between you and them anyway. Saint Teresa of Calcutta
Lord, help me to act with greater purity of intention in my life, leading me to find Your goodness.
