Between You and God...

A few years ago I spent some time at a monastery in Southwestern Missouri. While there I found the following words scribbled on a wall:



They may see the good you do
as self serving.
Continue to do good.
--
They may see your generosity
as grandstanding.
Continue to be generous.
--
They may see your warm
and caring nature as a weakness.
Continue to be warm and caring.
--
For you see, in the end,
it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them.

Amen.
