One of my good friends and old roommates lives on the East Coast. She comes “home” (a couple hours away), and we always try to make it a priority to see one another. Today, her family came our direction. Since one of our “I Will” statements involves seeing the good in others, I thought it would be good to focus on that today. Before our friends arrived, I talked to the girls about the importance in finding the good in others and being willing to compliment the good they see. We decided to play a game where we tried to see how many nice things they could see in a person while they were here. I was going to keep track of how many nice things they could find about our guests throughout the day. I gave little reminders here and there to be looking for the good. It was a fun way to lift others up while also really focusing on all of the gifts, talents and good choices someone else was making.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” – Philippians 4:8
