FOR WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP

 

ENCOURAGE, DON'T CRITICIZE

Therefore encourage (admonish, exhort) one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another.--1 Thessalonians 5:11


We can improve our relationships with others by leaps and bounds if we become encouragers instead of critics. It is the greater person who does the right thing; Christ's righteousness dwells in you to help you do what is right. You are great in God's eyes when you choose to do right and bless others.

No matter how rough your day is today, speak words that uplift and encourage those around you. Encourage others if you notice them doing a good job—not just those who work with you, but people wherever you go, such as store clerks, auto mechanics, and waiters. Say something like, "I appreciate the extra effort you are making to do your job well." You can change your life and someone else's by choosing to speak positive words.
