I was looking for some inspiration for my January article and started digging through what I call my “Tidbits and Treasures” file I was entrusted with from long time GLC member, Audrey Schaefer, who now resides in the church triumphant. I found several well worn words of inspiration that probably helped her in her years and I hope might be of help and inspiration to you this coming year. If one of these short articles inspires you I encourage you to cut it out and put it on your mirror as a quick morning devotional or in a book your reading as a book marker. Better yet in your Bible to guide you in your daily readings.
Happy New Year! Pastor Mike
-People are illogical, unreasonable, 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 have 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 men with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.
-People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
-What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
-People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.
-Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
