Television hosts tell joke after joke at the expense of others. News analysts make their living pointing out the weaknesses of leaders and politicians. Sports commentators dissect players’ performances, often with great smugness. And there are lots of people you know who seem to get great joy out of belittling others – even if they add, “Bless her heart” after they say it. It’s sad so many people spend so much time going negative. If you choose to become part of this culture of degradation, you can easily become someone you don’t want to be: negative, cruel and building yourself up at the expense of others. Even more importantly, you will become someone God did not create you to be. And that breaks God’s heart. So focus on God’s positive – and experience what a huge difference it makes for others, for God and for you.
