Proverbs 15:23 A person finds joy in giving an apt reply– and how good is a timely word!

There’s enough negativity in the world. We, as believers, don’t need to spread anymore negativity. In fact, we should be the positive light for people in every situation.

When someone tells us about their problems, we should respond with an optimistic outcome. When someone tells us about their goals, we should encourage them and provide additional wisdom when prompted by the Holy Spirit. When people are complaining about performing certain tasks, we can point out the benefits. We can compliment a person just because.

Being an optimist requires us to push past our own personal feelings and it forces us to trust God in spite of how things appear.

Although some may not recognize or thank us for our optimistic energy, our light can change the atmosphere, change a person’s perspective, and ultimately change the person entirely.

Be kind everyone. We’re spreading joy in the world.
