Encouragement is Contagious!
You catch more flies with honey...
Have you ever noticed that the people or things that initially grab and hold your attention best use an approach that is tailored to saying or showing good stuff about you? It’s human nature to like to see and hear things positive about ourselves.
Life lessons school teaches us to make a sandwich with our words when dealing with others. Start with a slice of positive bread, layer the meat of correction or opportunity in the middle, and then finish with the final slice of encouragement bread on top.
This is a biblically based principle that works far better than intimidating others with negativity and harsh words… Check your experience…
"A new life has been given us or, if you prefer, a design for living that really works" Big Book pg 28
Lord, let us use the eyes of our heart to look for and see the good in all people, places, and things today, AMEN.
"So let’s agree to use all our energy in getting along with each other. Help others with encouraging words; don’t drag them down by finding fault." Romans 14:19-21
Have a blessed day y'all!!
