With prayer as my practice and Spirit as my guide, I respond to life in mindful ways.

I admire those who have acted courageously and honorably under difficult circumstances, and I am thankful for all those whose lives have made a difference in the world and in my life.

My admiration for others reminds me to act wisely and courageously when faced with a challenge. I, too, can be of service to those unable to help themselves or those who need encouragement. With prayer as my practice and Spirit as my guide, I know what to do and how to respond in mindful, effective ways.

I honor every life given in service to others, and I honor every life lived in alignment with the guidance of Spirit. To everyone who has acted selflessly, I say, "Thank you!"

Respect those who labor among you ... esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.–1 Thessalonians 5:12-13.Inspired by this message? Want to talk to friends about it? Share your thoughts here.
