DO IT ANYWAY
 
Galatians 6:10 
While we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith
 
After I had driven home the point that nobody or nothing can keep us from being what God wants us to be, one of my students gave me this nugget of truth from an unknown author.
 
People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
 
Love them anyway.
 
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
 
Do good anyway.
 
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
 
Succeed anyway.
 
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
 
Do good anyway.
 
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
 
Be honest and frank anyway.
 
The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be shot down
 
by the smallest people with the smallest minds.
 
Think big anyway.
 
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
 
Fight for the underdog anyway.
 
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
 
Build anyway.
 
People really need help, but may attack you if you help them.
 
Help people anyway.
 
Give the world the best you've got and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
 
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
 
Prayer: Lord, I purpose today not to listen to my detractors or look to the left or the right, but to stay on the clear, sure path You have set before me.
