People will be ungrateful and hurtful. People will be unappreciative and downright selfish, despite all that you have sacrificed. People will lie and manipulate to get what they want.
But you know what?
I’m not doing it for them. I live for a greater cause and a greater purpose. I live for Him.
When we make that choice, it doesn’t matter what others say about us, how they attempt to manipulate situations for their own benefit, or the lies they tell. I’ve chosen to live in such a way that even if people do speak evil about me, my life will prove otherwise.
When we choose to not be bound by what others think or what others might say, we choose freedom.
You have the choice to be bound and you also have the choice to be set free.
It’s not up to anyone else, but you.
