“Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it.” That’s what Proverbs 11:27 tells us. In a nutshell, it means that anyone can find the dirt in someone, but we should strive to be the ones who find the gold.
It can be easy to focus on the negative in people and point out their flaws to make ourselves feel like we are better than them. That’s something anyone can do. Anyone can focus on the negative in someone. It takes a humble mind to think of the good in others most of the time. It is so much healthier for our minds and our hearts to be positive. Our outlook on life depends on it! Also, when we start talking positive about people behind their backs instead of negative, people start to notice. Be an example for others and make them wonder why you are different. Let Jesus shine through you.
Be the one who finds the gold.
