We get what we give…
It seems to be a common line of thought and an acceptable practice these days to look for the bad and find fault in others as part of the attempt to build ourselves up.
Perhaps you have learned the hard way, like I have, that all this brings us misery, chaos, and trouble.
When I took an honest look at my part in these behaviors years ago, I knew I had to make a change.
Just like the spiritual principle says,
we GET what we GIVE.
I find that when I spend my time building others up and looking for the good in others, the same is returned to me, even more than I deserve!..
Check your experience…
“We cannot be helpful to all people, but at least God will show us how to take a kindly and tolerant view of each and every one.” Big Book pg. 67
Lord, let us look for the good in others and not give into fault finding, AMEN.
"Make allowance for each other's faults and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others." Colossians 3:13
