Encourage Kindness

DSC07168 publish

We see and hear so much negativity, hopelessness and violence in this world every day.  Sometimes I think the media forgets about all the good people and positive things that happen each day.  I am not saying we should ignore talking about the bad things…we just need some balance in the distribution of information.  I have read a quote in a few different places recently that speaks to the attitude of kindness we all need to remember…

“Every person you encounter every day is fighting a battle that you know nothing about.”

I understand that to say, don’t be so quick to judge another person without knowing all the facts and do not trust any form of media to provide all the information necessary to be informed about an event or issue.  I have stated in the past the Bible is a great instruction manual for life and here are a few encouraging verses…

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

                                                                                                John 14:27

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”

                                                                                                John 16:33

May we all find peace and a positive outlook today.
