A higher standard

Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you.
Never excuse yourself.
Never pity yourself.
Be a hard master to yourself.
And be lenient to everybody else. - Henry Ward Beecher

I think this quote is quite brilliant. It sums up a very good attitude and mindset, but also encourages us to have grace for others. It reminds me of the well known words of Paul from Philippians 4:8.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true,  
whatever is noble,  
whatever is right,  
whatever is pure,  
whatever is lovely,  
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things.

May God bless you today.

Living in Grace
