From the funny paper:
Sluggo: "That new kid in school is a big fat-head!"
Nancy: "You shouldn't call people names like that. I never call people names."
Sluggo: "Well, I just got mad when he said you were silly looking."
Nancy: "What else did that big fat-head say?"
Are you one that finds fault? Is it easy for you to criticize? Do you look for those chances? If so, the first thing we can do is look for the motive. Is there something behind our criticism? Nancy had nothing bad to say about that new kid until she "thought" he didn't like her, she "thought" he criticized her.
Beware of that trap, and avoid it by your compliments of others.
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8
May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours today, and always remember that you are loved!!!
