Below is a letter which was circulated to pastors in Africa. I wanted to share it with you today because I think the advice helps us a lot in our goal to live like Jesus publicly. Our living like Jesus shouldn’t rely on others but all what He is done for us and flow from our love for Him.

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centred.

Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.

Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win 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 and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.

Think big anyway.

People favour 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.

Becoming like Jesus involves us giving our best. He gave of himself even while we were still enemies of God. When we had done just evil, He was good to us. When we had just hate, He showed us love.
