Capsule for the Day

"If we all do our best, without really bothering about who takes the glory, we will do an awful lot". We will be totally free from stress and anxiety. We will happily bring out our gifts and talents for the good of all. We will be fulfilled. God will be glorified and there will be peace on earth.

But the ideal is often far from the reality. I want to be noticed... Tom wants to get the bonus... Jess can't stand the fact that Marg wants to outshine her... and then we all begin the secret scheming and worry sets in... what if he, she outsmart me? I will not be noticed. I will be gone.

On the other hand, to live the ideal is really hard work. But the beauty of it is we come to love what we do and do it with ease and with so much joy. Without knowing it, people begin to notice and we get the glory on the platter of gold. Then we become vessels in which God is glorified.
