Those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness. - Proverbs 14:22

Dear Jesus, from eternity you planned the greatest good and because of that you have found love and faithfulness in the hearts of your people.  This is a great core value for me to follow.  I will look at all my plans for my day, week, and life and ask, "Is this a plan to bring good to others and glory to God?"  Then I will quietly trust that what will come in return from the people I touch is love and faithfulness.  I know it won't be perfectly given back to me.  But it will be there.  There will be good will and loyalty in the hearts of those I serve selflessly. It's because your love and grace work!  Because I believe this, I will set my heart on being a conduit of your good will for humanity.  Give me long suffering and endurance to love others consistently even when they do immediately give me love in return. AMEN

You can forget a face or a name.  But you can never forget being loved.
