“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
By giving generously of our time, our talents, and ourselves; by treating others with respect – the way you would want to be treated; and by sharing with others our testimonies and relationship with God, we are becoming what God wants us to be. Simply by being the best version of ourselves, we are inspiring others to do the same.
You know the saying, “When Mom’s happy, everyone is happy”? That is the same with everyone really, because everyone feeds off of each other. How many does your spouse come home from work in a rotten mood and doesn’t know why, and then all of sudden, your mood starts to change for the worse as well. We feed negativity off of each out just as we do positivity. Being positive is so much less stressful and brings everyone much more joy and peace. Try to find the good in everything; there is good in everything if you look deep enough.
Whenever you have the opportunity to share your testimony with someone, don’t let that opportunity pass you by. Sharing your story with others will not only inspire them, but it may just help them overcome something they may be dealing with as well. It will remind them that if we can overcome obstacles, so can they! God gives us the strength we need to live through our toughest moments. He does not give us more than we can handle; He only makes us stronger so that we can endure every obstacle, every challenge, and every test that gets thrown our way. When we live according to God’s Will, we will live an abundant life full favor and promises that are just waiting for us!
