Choose Life

I Choose Love… No occasion justifies hatred; no injustice warrants bitterness. I choose love.
Today I will love God and what God loves. 

I Choose Joy… 
I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance.
I will refuse the temptation to be cynical.
I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God.
I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God. 

I Choose Peace… 
I will live forgiven.
I will forgive so I may live. 

I Choose Patience
I will overlook the inconveniences of the world.
Instead of cursing someone who takes my place, I’ll invite him to do so.
Instead of complaining that the wait is too long, I will thank God for a moment to pray.
Instead of clenching my fist at new assignments, I will face them with joy and courage.

I Choose Kindness… 
I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone.
Kind to the rich, for they are afraid.
And Kind to the unkind, for that is how God has treated me.

I Choose Goodness…
I will go without a dollar before I…
