act in faith...

act in faith. A dear friend forwarded the below quote from Mother Teresa to me and I had to spread this message along. Mother Teresa lived a life of action in faith and this quote is should act as a reminder and source of inspiration for us all.

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 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 will 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

So, for today I will act in faith. I will remember that it's between me and God - period.
