Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone. (Mitch Albom, best-selling author))
More from Albom: “If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere.” How much time and effort many of us have wasted, trying to prove our worth to others. An open heart is a key to acceptance.
Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval (2 Timothy 2:15).
