To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves.
~Will Durant


Sometimes we say bad things about others. When we do this, it makes us look bad too. Our friends worry what we might say about them behind their backs. They're afraid to trust us. We become known as gossips.

The things we say about other people tell a lot about us. We are kind or unkind. We gossip or we don't. This doesn't mean we have to say everyone is wonderful all the time. As we work to see ourselves better, we begin to see other people more clearly too. We see their strong points and their weak points. But we can know these things without gossiping about them.



Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me see others clearly, and in their best light. Let me bring out the good in others.

Action for the Day

Today, I'll list the people I'm closest to at work, school, and home. I'll think of how I talk about them to others. Am I kind?



Today's Thought is a reading from the book:
Keep it Simple by Anonymous

That is a great topic.

I find that I've had to deal with resentments.
However,now when they come into my mind I try to tell myself to let it go. What good does a resentment really do? Nothing for me. I don't need to take other peoples' inventory I just need to stay my focus on ME.

There's no need to trash anyone else. If I do that then am I any better than the person I'm talking bad about? No Way.
If I'm really having a probelm with someone I will try to talk to that person and if that doesn't work then it's time for me to put it in my God Box.
I have a box that I will put things I'm having problems with. I try to write it out and turn it over to God. I find my God Box is not as filled as it once was.
I try really hard to keep my focus on myself and not pick someone else apart.
This has taken years to get where I'am today with this.

Now,watch now that I've said this someone is going to aggravate the hell out of me and I'll have to practice my preach....LOL

Marie that's an excellent idea. I still find myself having to catch myself in my thinking, especially lately with my inlaws. I'm really trying but having a hard time of it.
The idea of keeping a God Box is a good one.
Thank you for sharing
