Have you ever thought about what doesn’t work in the world? Once you start, your mind shifts from one concerning thought to the next, and pretty soon, it gets hard to avoid letting your emotions get the best of you. But, what if we were to stop and rather, focus on what is good in the world? What would we do with all of the joy harvested from positive thoughts? The result would likely leave us feeling completely different.
This idea is summed up in the book of Mark 12:30-31: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself'. There is no commandment greater than these.” (NIV)
Join me in thinking about ways we can think positively and share more joy throughout our community.
