Find the Gold
Noticing, drawing out, and cultivating the positive qualities in others raises their Spirit and encourages growth. Pointing out defects has the opposite effect. Praise is much more productive than criticism.
So what happens when we monitor our own mental chatter and apply the same principle to ourselves?
The original verse in the New American Standard Bible is:
"One who diligently seeks good seeks favor, But one who seeks evil, evil will come to him."
This quote is an interpretation from the Prayer Journal: Bible Journal, to Help You Grow Spiritually (2019), according to Goodreads.com
