” Wisdom from Mother Theresa”
“Mother Theresa was a happy person. In the middle of the poverty, illness, and hopelessness of Calcutta, she exuded joy. Here is something she wrote” :
” 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, others may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
If you give the world the best you have, it may never be enough; Give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and other people anyway.”
As a mother to 2 girls and 2 boys, I realize how much parents need a resource for biblical and encouraging parenting information. Hope you, too will take inspirations from the wisdom of Mother Theresa as you shepherd your children to a Christian way of life. God bless your family.
