Corporate Living #8

This one is a good test of our attitude as a member of a group:  
Corporate Living Principle #8:  If you want to live well with others, then . . . 

"Be more inclined to compliment and encourage than correct."

How about it --  

  • What is your inclination when you get with this group of people?  
  • Think back over your recent interactions with members of the group. Did you spend more time complimenting or criticizing?  
  • When was the last time you complimented someone in the group?  When was the last time someone compliment you?
  • What was the compliment about? Someone's outward appearance or their inward resemblance to Kingdom of God values?
To be healthy, we need to have at least one group of people in our lives that nurtures our inclination to praise more than our tendency to complain. Be thankful that you've found such a group, and let the members know how much you value their positive influence.
