Just like focusing is difficult, finding good isn’t as easy as it sounds. Like the spec on my gym locker door, the 99 percent good pales as our eye focuses in on that one spec.
Think about it. That negative political post comes across the news feed and it’s so tempting to hit the share button.

The details of the couple breaking up often fly too quickly over the airwaves of Messenger, text and phone convetsations.
What ever happened to stopping and praying for someone? When’s the last time you CHOSE to overlook someone’s shortcomings and focus on everything they’re doing right?
This is love. This is what Christ did for us. This is the awesome power in choosing to find the good!
