Looking for Good, and not Being Critical or Cynical

April 18, 2010 at 5:06 pm (Spiritual) (, )

I remember as a missionary serving in Mexico City how caring and hospital the cultur was, this was one of the first things that I noticed that was different than the American cultur. People that we had just meet would be willing to feed us whatever we wanted. There wasn’t this attitude that you had to earn friendship or earn your right to care for each other.

(Gossip)
For whatever reason I think people are way to cynical and want to think negatively before positivly. It’s crazy to me how when something good, uplifting, or praiseworthy when talked about only gets focused on once in a while, but when someone has something goes wrong or talkes about someones faults that everyones ears seem to chime in and it fuels itself. I’m just as guilty but, I’m going to fix it.

(Negativity)
I promise that what you focus on in life the most is what you get. You see it everyday. For example, when you have a bad day it always seems to get worse and build on itself, if all you worry about is being poor you’ll be poor, if your critical about movies you’ll see less movies you like, and if your like me and you don’t appreciate country music, the worse it gets. The same goes for positivity. The people that are the most sucessful in life focus on that. If you are negative before positive you will have a negative life.

I find it also funny when someone says something nice to you and you take it like they’re not genuin or have intent of being nice. Who cares! Any excuse to be nice is a good one and you should take it as that. If you worry so much about bad intentions you’ll worry less about good ones and having them yourself.

To summerise. Be positive and focus on everything more positivey, then you will have a better life.

Matthew 6:24

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
