Positive

10.30.2015

I have been pondering on comfort and encouragement and how it can effect the human being.

Have you noticed that you get more comments of criticismLearn  of encouragement?  It seems we are surrounded with correction and negative comments most of the time.  The world is rushing good,nd and so focused on "tomorrow" that few are aware of today. Jesus told us to focus on today and be thoughtful about tomorrow. "Take no thought of tomorrow for sufficient for the day is the evil thereof"  Matthew 6:34

In counseling I have noticed over and over again that people are fully aware, or think they are, of all they do wrong or all they mess up.  They are not aware of their value or what they do that is positive.  Words are powerful and carry great weight; they will bring comfort or discouragement. It is hard to not respond to someone who is positive and imparts positive to us.  We are drawn to someone who seems to see something good in us, something acceptable and something worthwhile.  Jesus does this. His Word does this. How thankful I am for both - one and the same. The simple truth is, one cannot impart comfort or encouragement or  Life  to anyone if they don't have it themselves. 
Don't you feel like the world needs this? I do!  It doesn't mean that correction is not needful, or to be brought to us, but it does make a huge difference in how it is done.  So much hurt, so much pain and so many disappointments, so much anger colors our words. Selfishness comes from our fear of not getting what we need, fear of losing what we have.
Today we have a choice:  will we be one who comforts, encourages, brings a positive word to someone, or will we be the one who is critical and negative and brings condemnation and hopelessness?  This can be "death" to the hearer.  Keep in mind that none of us really deserves goodness.

Romans 3:12   "They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”
Romans 10:15   "And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
Romans 15:2   "Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification"

We all fail, we all blow up, we all can bite and chew each other up.

Galatians 5:15    "But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!"

However, it is time for a change. It will take one person at a time, one on one.  I am quite sure that we would prefer that people are patient and kind to us, understanding and encouraging, uplifting and positive. I am quite sure that we would prefer someone see that what we are doing is good and that we are not all "bad".   Isn't this true?
So, will you add to the problem or will you be a strong part of the solution?  Learn how to bring instruction and correction so that the person blooms instead of dies. A "win-win".  Learn how to speak to those around you as you would want them to speak to you. Think about how you want someone to treat your heart of emotions and feelings.  Learn to impart goodness and not evil.
Step out today and change the world. It won't be easy but it is possible. Stay the course and be purposeful. Don't let the big bag of wind of adversity and opposition blow out your Light!  Rise up and be a child of God and not a child of the devil.  Purpose to find the positive instead of all the negative. Be a helpmate to Jesus and not a hindrance. You will benefit too! Today is the day!!!   Get going!  What you give out you will get back.................

- Pastor Sandi


Job 16:2,5   "I have heard many things like this; you are miserable comforters, all of you!"   "But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief."
