Leaning Forward 05

One of the great principles of finding joy in life is to surround yourself with positive people. God said so in Hebrews 10:24,25. Encouragement strengthens. Negativity destroys. Enthusiasm is contagious. Chronic pessimism is toxic. If you’ve become accustomed to having negative influences in your life (friends, tv, social media, etc.), it’s difficult to set your foot down and initiate change. But as disciples of Jesus we are to live in the blessing of today. “This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Ps. 118:24). Outreach into a sin saturated world requires spiritual vitality and conviction. Fuel up with faith-filled people who can see the positive in what God is accomplishing today!
