I Know Something Good About You
Wouldn’t this world be better, if folks whom we meet would say
“I know something good about you,”
And treat you just that way?
Wouldn’t it be splendid,
If each hand shake good and true, Carried with it this assurance;
“I know something good about you?”
Wouldn’t life be happier,
If the good that’s in us all,
Were the only thing about us
That people would recall?
Wouldn’t our days be sweeter,
If we praised the good we see;
For there is a lot of goodness,
In the worst of you and me?
Wouldn’t it be fine to practice,
This way of thinking too;
You know something good about me,
I know something good about you?
And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
To focus on the good, is to be keenly aware of the blessings God has so generously bestowed upon us. To focus on HIM and His attributes; He is Goodness, Kindness, Gracious, Merciful, Forgiving, Loving and TRUE.
I will look to the good and give praise for all the positive things that does go on. I will stop and take the time to appreciate ones kindness. I will overlook an offense because the LORD has overlooked thousands of mine. I will be, who GOD has called me to be through the Power of HIS Might because I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Let us be women, who shine for HIS GLORY. Being kind and true, tenderhearted, forgiving one another.
