YOU AND GOD

YOU AND GOD

People are often unreasonable,
Irrational, and self-centered;
Forgive them any way.

If you are kind, people may accuse
You of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
Unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere
People may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway;

What you spend years creating
Others could destroy overnight;
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
Some may be jealous,
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
Will often be forgotten,
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have,
And it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis,
It is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway
-Mother Teresa.
