Be An Encourager!

1 Cor 13:4-7 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself
unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all
things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

A survey asked mothers to keep track of how many times they made both
negative and postive comments to their children. The surveyed mothers
admitted that they criticized at least ten times for every one time they
said something favorable. Another survey taken in one city’s schools
found that the teachers were negative seventy five per cent of the time.
This study concluded that it takes four positive statements to a child
from a parent or teacher to offset the effects of one negative
statement. Wow, when I think about how many times I've said negative things to
people in my lifetime, I have some posetive paying back to do!

Many times we justify our criticizing, hurtful words and actions by
thinking we're right in a matter. But, in fact, the only one who's all
right is the Lord! And He has called us to be the encouragers of the
world! We have the gift of God residing within us, and we are ambassors of
the His love. We need to constantly remind ourselves to operate under
that love in every circumstance - even the most difficult!

When we find ourselves getting ready to criticize, let's strive to stop
in our tracks and say something encouraging instead --- not only to the
world around us but to ourselves!
