OUR DAILY MANNA DAILY DEVOTIONAL DECEMBER 17, 2021 (SEE THE BEST IN PEOPLE)
TOPIC: SEE THE BEST IN PEOPLE
BASIC SCRIPTURE: LUKE 15: 19-24
One of the outstanding things that love does is that it sees the best in people. If you truly love someone, you will see the best in them and do all that you can to bring out the best in them. You will be quick to take note of the good things that they are doing and praise them for those things.
Its been found that people respond more to praise and encouragement than to criticism. People perform better under an atmosphere of praise and encouragement than under an atmosphere of criticism and fear. Learn to praise and encourage people.
lt’s always easy to pick on the ugly things that people do. Everybody is an expert at identifying what they don’t like about someone. However very few people have learnt that: THE WORLD IS HUNGRY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SKILLFUL AT IDENTIFYING THE TREASURES IN PEOPLE. Everyone you meet today is a package of treasures.
Look out for those treasures and celebrate learnt them. That was one outstanding thing about the father of that prodigal son. He waited for his son everyday to come back home. He did not give up. He knew that one day, his son was going to come back and he prepared to welcome him.
I receive him and show him unusual love. He saw the best in his son, even though the son did not deserve it. Loving Others and believing them is like planting seeds in the lives of those people. Those seeds will germinate and produce fruitful crops and at the end of the day, they will benefit you and an unlimited number of people will benefit.
Get this warning. When people praise you, don’t allow it get into your head; and when they criticize you, don’t let it get into your heart! Close with this: It is best to be generous with praise but cautious with criticism.
Pray seriously now even as you determine to sow copies of this booklet into a family this week!
