Bringing our Best | Personal

Surely one should bring the best she has, whatever that is, to the work of God's world?

For what are they, both of them, the one just as much as the other, but listening to 'what the people will say', to opinion, to the 'voices from without?'  
And as a wise man has said, no one has ever done anything great or useful 
by listening to the voices from without.

And now, you think these things trifles, or at least exaggerated.  
But what you 'think' or what I 'think' matters little.  
Let us see what God thinks of them.  God always justifies His ways.

Oh, go your way straight to God's work, 
in simplicity and singleness of heart.

(Florence Nightingale, Notes on the Field of Nursing)
