In the book of Proverbs we are offered two ways to live our lives. We can be seekers of good or pursuers of evil. We can have a positive attitude building people up, or a negative one tearing people down. In this podcast Tony discusses being positive.
Scripture: “Those who seek the good seek favor, but those who pursue evil will have evil come upon them.” –Proverbs 11:27
“Who is the man who delights in life, who loves to see the good days? Keep your tongue from evil, your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.” –Psalm 34:13-15
Quotes: “Indifference to our neighbor and to God also represents a real temptation for us Christians. Each year during Lent we need to hear once more the voice of the prophets who cry out and trouble our conscience.” –Pope Francis
Anyone can find the dirt in someone, be the one that finds the gold.
Reflections: How do you rid yourself if negativity? Do you seek out opportunities to praise? Have you ever been involved in spreading rumors? Ever get caught? Hoe did that make you feel?
