doing the best

Every once in awhile there's a quote on my gardening flip calendar that has nothing to do with digging in the dirt gardening as I found this week:

"Our closest friends challenge us to change, to grow, to become the best we can be." ~ Author Unknown

And yet, it can still be considered a gardening quote as it encourages us to plant seeds of encouragement in the lives around us.  It could be our children who need some challenging as we see character traits that need some refining and changing to become more Christlike as they mature.  It could be our close friends who may need some challenging as we see gifts and talents in their lives which perhaps they are fearful to step out in faith to use.  It could be the store clerk who does a wonderful job doing what they do every time you see them as you encourage them to continue to bless people with their words and actions.  It could be a complete stranger who needs the warmth of your smile to get through the next moments of their life.

ALL of us need a little encouragement on a daily basis to do whatever we do and  please remember the best kind of challenge in doing it - "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." ~ First Corinthians 10:31

Yup, when you do it all for the glory of God it will be the best!
