Do it anyway

Wise words from someone who loved extravagantly:

"People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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 false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway."

~ Mother Teresa

With the sheer number of orphans living on the streets of Johannesburg - thousands upon thousands - what difference does it make if I help in only a small way rescue just a handful? It matters to that handful.

And it matters to God.

So it matters to me. . .
