Edify don’t mortify

What a great thought! What is your answer? Can you be honest with yourself?

IMG_20151118_131259When you talk about others,
Do you edify
Or mortify?
When you talk about others,
Do you elevate
Or downgrade?
When you talk about others,
Do you speak positively
Or negatively?

The tendency with many people when they talk about others is to speak negatively; to mortify instead of edify; to speak negatively instead of positively.

Speaking negatively about others does not help any one. Mortifying someone helps neither the one mortified nor the one who mortifies.
Thus, why spend precious time mortifying when there is so much good that can be praised?

When we see good things in others, and when others do good work, let us make them know. Instead of being profuse in our denigration, let us be profuse in our praise.

It doesn’t cost anything; does it? Not at all; but it does a lot of good.IMG_20151114_171557
