    Mother Teresa's encouragement to me this morning


     People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.

    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

     If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.

    If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.

    What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

     If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

     The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

    Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

    In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.



    Getting Into Shape Sermon Listening Sheet

     What does a human have in common with the moon?

    2 Corinthians 3:18: “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

    God created you to be unique.

    Romans 12:2: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a newness in all you do and think.”


    1. Discern who you are .
    Have you ever been around an individual who always thinks they’re right?

    2. Celebrate diversity .

    3. Recognize dependency.

    There are so many ways that we are different from each other. That’s how God designed us.

    • ·       Spiritual Gifts (Special Abilities)
    • ·       Heart (Holy Passion)
    • ·       Abilities (set of talents)
    • ·       Personality (how you do it)
    • ·       Experiences (Parts of your past God intends to use)

      I’m shaped differently than you, and you’re put together differently than I am. And that’s a good thing.

      3. Recognize our dependency
