ook for the good
It takes faith and optimism to be able to look past others' shortcomings and see what they could become.
This is a gift, and one that a lot more people could have if they would only ask Me for it.
The more you look for the good in people, the more you will find. It's like the saying, "Tell him he's wonderful and he will be wonderful. Tell her she's beautiful and she will be beautiful."
If you have a positive attitude that shows you have faith in someone, that person will probably try to live up to your expectations.
If you focus on a person's bad habit or trait, it gradually takes on such importance that it eventually eclipses anything good about that person in your mind. But it also works the other way: If you can focus on even one good quality, you will discover other good things.
A person may have twenty faults for every good quality, but everyone has some good qualities. If you can't think of one right off, keep at it.
Find something praiseworthy, no matter how small or inconsequential it may seem compared to the person's faults. Or if you really can't, ask Me or someone else to help you find something.
Determine to appreciate that person for that one good quality, and you will bring out his or her other good qualities.
Before long, the good will outweigh the bad and your relationship with that person will be more positive and fruitful.
Once you look for the good in one person, you will more easily find the good in others. And it's catching. Pretty soon others will view you as a happy, positive person who is nice to be around.
iracle of love
What I ask of My children—those who have received Me into their hearts—is a miracle. I ask for outgoing, sacrificial love. It's human nature to be self-preserving, self-seeking, self-satisfying.
It's human nature to put one's own needs above the needs of others. But when it comes to loving, My children have a great advantage because I've broken those natural circuits. I've rewired their minds and hearts to do My bidding, which is to love others.
I told some of My first followers, "By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another" (John 13:35).
In that day, the love My followers had for one another caused the world to sit up and take notice.
Such love is even more remarkable in this day and age when people are so consumed with themselves.
Most people have closed themselves off from loving sacrificially. But this lack of love only serves to make the love of My children shine more brightly!
Every time you put My love into action, you also become a little more like Me, so people will see more of Me and less of you.
People cannot deny that such love is out of this world. They ask, "Where do you get such love—and how can I get it?"
I know this kind of love is far above your natural ability. If you try to do this in your own strength, you'll wear out and become discouraged and frustrated. But I am the source of love. I am love, and you can have more of Me than you've ever had before!
"Ask and you will receive" (Matthew 7:7). If you pray for the love you need and are then willing to put it into action, I will give you My love in such tremendous volume and power that you will know you are part of a miracle!
