Choose to See the Good

smileI’ve been challenged on back-to-back days to see the good in people.  It’s interesting to me since the admonitions came from widely different sources, yet still gave me the same basic message.  And I have to admit, it’s a little disconcerting for me since I’m a pretty good pessimist. After all, it’s tough to be disappointed when you expect the worst right?  So, as a rule, I tend to see the worst in people.  But I guess that’s not a real healthy or Christian way to look at things.  After all, Jesus tended to look at all the people that were marginalized and saw all kinds of good in them, many times when they couldn’t see the good in themselves.  So here I am saying that I’m attempting to see the good in people.  I might even update my progress later on.  So stay tuned.
