Gracious and careful are the Words of life. Give sparingly to those who begrudge you. Do not waste your energies worrying about how you are perceived. Only strive to live for Me, and all else will fall away. There is no recompense in pleasing the world, for you cannot. Give to Me all that you have and all that you are. Put your own pride of needing to be understood aside. It is an impossible thing for you to accomplish… gaining the respect of the whole world. My Son, your Lord and Guide, did not. In fact, He didn’t even try. That was not His Mission, nor is it yours. You will gain the respect and love of many, and that is more than enough.
