For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:2 Holy Bible, New Living Translation
Be careful of the words you say to someone today (especially the young ones), it may affect them the rest of their lives.
I grew up with very strong negative inputs in my life. I was constantly reminded of what a failure I was and that nothing was going to come of me. After moving away from these Negative Neliies it took me many decades to gain confidence in myself and that I was not a failure. The Holy Spirit had His work cut out with me. I like to say that I have succeeded in life in spite of those around me not because of them.
The good thing about this is that I was extremely sensitive to my children when a teacher.
No, I did not give them false beliefs like so many today that they can accomplish anything they desire and put their mind to. I did explain to them that sometimes there are things you cannot do but that does not make you a failure.
I did not puff them up when they succeeded but did praise and encourage them to expand their skills and knowledge from a sincere heart for their good.
They knew it and loved teacher for it.
I often wonder just how much I influenced their lives for good by my example.
And just remember this: what goes around, comes around. As you do unto others, so too will it be done back unto you. I have seen it oh so many times and believe me, it ain’t pretty.
“It is easier to ridicule than commend.” — Thomas Fuller
Prayer: Please Jehovah Ghmolah (The God of Recompense) put a lock on my lips when filth is about to be spewed from it and open it wide when sweet words of encouragement are about to flow from it. I deeply desire my speech to emulate Yours with whom have spoken so encouragingly to me. May I encourage others as You have me. I meekly request this in Your beautiful sons name who spoke so eloquently, like I deeply desire to, Jesus Christ. Amen
May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day
