Jesus, help me to continue to have the heart and motivation of the Samaritan when he saw the needy man along the way. Taking the time to stop and help wasn’t on his schedule and his medical expenses weren’t in the Samaritan’s budget.
He didn’t consider these factors to be an obstacle that would keep him from extending Your mercy to one in need. Jesus, help me to be Your hand extended reaching out to the needy, the sick, and the oppressed.
When it is YOUR will, please help me…show me..guide me to be a CHOSEN vessel that You use to heal the broken-hearted as You bind up their wounds.
Father, I will do it in Jesus’ name and for Your honor. Amen.
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 true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.

Do you set a good example for others? Are you proud of your words and actions? As Albert Einstein accurately observed, setting a good example is the only means of influencing another person. A major cause of stress is trying to change someone. It’s hard enough to change yourself. It’s virtually impossible to change someone else.
Setting a good example isn’t an attempt to change someone. Rather, it’s showing by your words and deeds what is possible. Some people will pick up on your example while others won’t. You have no control over how other people act.
Regardless of how others see it, setting a good example always works to your benefit. Besides the possibility of influencing others, you attract positive people and situations by your positive actions.
Start setting a good example by always being courteous and polite to all those you come into contact with. Have respect for and show kindness to others. Even if you are treated poorly, resist the temptation to react in kind. I have seen this approach bring a smile to even the surliest individuals.
Have your life shine as an example to others. You don’t have to be perfect but you should always be striving to improve. Regardless of your past, you can direct your future in any direction you chose.
