Motivational Monday - Be Christ-Like Anyway

Be Christ-Like ANYWAY
Author Unknown

"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're successful, you win false friends and make true enemies;

try to succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow;

be good anyway.

Honesty and frankness will get you nowhere; they make you vulnerable;

be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend days building may be destroyed overnight;

do it anyway.

People really need help but they attack you if you try to help them;

try anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you get kicked in the mouth;

give the world the best you have anyway."

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

What great thoughts.. If only everyone had this as a goal.. it would be a better world!

I look forward to seeing your flowers! I have missed you and your blog!

PS: I want to wash/clean all of my walls next week. What do you use? Just water and dish soap?

Great thoughts Sondra and they come at a really good time for me as I have been dealing with a VERY hard person in my life.

Good to remember to be Christlike.

LOVE this! I have to speak sacrament meeting on Sunday regarding Relief Society. What a nice thought to use.

Your quarterly activity looked like fun. OH fun! And I can tell you are an excelent teacher.

What a nice, motivational thought to share. I could use a daily thought/reminder like this. Thanks!

A great motivational Monday post!

After a RS lesson on forgiveness on Sunday, I realized I need to try harder to be more Christ-like.

Thanks for more inspiration to do it!

I so needed to read this. Thank you. My BIL and SIL decided to have a little talk with Dr. Hubby about me while he was visiting their home. They said several negative things about me and even made up one to help prove their point. Sad thing is it all boiled down to SIL being upset that I am goind to AI concert with someone and didn't invite her.'d think they would allow me to do things that don't always include them! LOL! Oops...sorry to spurt all this out on your comment. I just trust you. Happy Monday!
