March 15 – Daily Feast
Why judge yourself by what someone else is saying? They only know what they think. Can we fit our lives into the narrow confines of theirs? We can search our own souls. And most likely, we will find that we have connections uniquely our own – deeper in many ways than those with whom we would like to be in accord. But there’s no way we can whip ourselves into being like someone else. We can only make ourselves better. Regardless of how we have been conditioned to think, we know right from wrong. It is innate and speaks loud enough that if we want to hear it, we will. The only thing that keeps us from hearing is the clamor of voices outside ourselves – and they have no other purpose but to destroy. Don’t dally with trouble. Refuse to be a part of anything you would not look at in the light.
