They are everywhere ... at work, in society and maybe even in our homes. Who are they? People we classify as "different". They can range from a disgruntled co-worker to someone who seems they're not from earth. Sometimes, we give them a few other disheartening or peculiar names, depending on their actions. I bet the variety of adjectives are loading in our minds right now with the memory of that "special someone". In our busy society, time is not taken to understand these people. No one can read someone else's mind. But wouldn't life be much easier if everyone would just think like us anyway?
The influences and experiences we had in our childhood all affect how we think and how we act. So perhaps, these people didn't have the good experiences in their youth others were fortunate to have. Among our negative, selective labels we slap on these people, what would happen if we change our mindset and look at them positively like God looks on us. Go ahead, search, find and say something nice about this person and continue to. I challenge you to refrain from voicing any negative comments. It's hard especially if they're a pain in the neck. (Perhaps they came from an abusive environment and are full of hurt). Next time, when we think about stating anything negative about this person, we won't look good at all as it won't be in sync with our previous positive comments. We need to be true to ourselves. By changing our negative thoughts to positive, we are training ourselves to be better than before. It is the epitome of showing God's love. The Bible states in Matthew 25:40--The King will reply " I tell you the truth, whatever you've done to the least of these, you've done it unto me."
