A reader encouraged me the other day to keep my eyes focused on the good and not the bad. It’s good advice. It’s hard to do. Good and bad exist in our world and let’s face it “bad” is the cranky kid who whines and usually gets the front seat in life. “Bad” news sells. “Bad” news gets us sympathy. It also kills our personality and sucks the joy out of everything around us.
Good is the one making the most out of every opportunity, learning from past mistakes, and moving forward with anticipation to try something new.
Good is what Jesus would have me focus on.
Why do I struggle with that focus? Suggestions?
