Some days I still have the capacity to be shocked.
People of faith tend to be the ones who disappoint the most. I expect more of them, but this is pretty unrealistic even in the best of times.
I’m not totally jaded, I still expect good behavior from everyone although this is often not the case. If I were honest, I am probably just as guilty.
I revert to the words of Mother Teresa “If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.” When wronged, we must let it go and forgive as we take a step forward in faith.
To dwell on the negative is self-defeating. And the thing I refuse to be is defeated!
Today…I will be kind anyway.
