Many of us have probably heard the question about whether a glass is half full or half empty. Throughout our lives we will face many different situations. Our perspectives will determine our actions. In life, we can focus on the wrong-doing and evil things of the world or we can focus on the true and honorable things. We can make the choice!
We don't have to wonder about God's direction. We are reminded in Philippians to focus on the things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and excellent. We should heed this advice and view the glass as "half full." In seeing all that is good, we can praise God for all of the blessings that He has provided. Furthermore, thinking about these good things can help us to spread God's love and the message of the Good News!
Think about the good things that God provides and share them with others!
Thank You for all of the good in the world. Help me to focus on these things and to give You all praise and glory. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
