"Do Good Anyway..."

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell



"And no doubt you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power.  Then Jesus went around doing good and  healing all who were oppressed by the Devil, for God was with Him."
~ Luke as recorded in Acts 10:38 ~

"Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you.  Pray for the happiness of those who curse you.  Pray for those who hurt you..."
~ Jesus as recorded in Luke 6:27-28 ~

Mother Teresa.  A woman truly after the heart of God.  There is no doubt from her life that she craved God's heart and wanted  to 'dance' to His heartbeat as she revealed Him moment by moment.

Here's a beautiful reminder of one of my favorite quotes...our pastor read it at the end of the 'Forgiveness' series which sums up the ministry of Jesus and what each of us can reveal throughout our life moment by moment...
"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."
-this version is credited to Mother Teresa
