554 – No One Gets Ahead By Being Negative
No one cares what we don’t like. And even less what we hate. Of course, no one can be positive all the time–nor is there reason to be, but I have for decades been praying to be a positive person who builds up people rather than tear them down.
I may not be the gold standard for gracious speech, but I’m making steady improvement with Proverbs 22:11 as a life verse: “Whoever loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend.” That’s why I resist the temptation to slam or harshly critique people. Trust me, the temptation is there, but I want better things for my life. I know you do, too.
