Often I want others to respect me, so I emphasize my accomplishments. Still, I know that reflecting your love through faithful service is a more admirable quality. Open my eyes so that I may see others from your perspective, Lord. Soften my heart so I can love them as you do. And if others admire me, may it because of your work in me.  
(an excerpt from the book, 365 Pocket Prayers, by Ron Beers)
