HOW DO YOU LEAVE PEOPLE?
Now this post is about leaving people, as in, leaving them after being with them for a few hours or a day, or even a few moments. How do you leave the person?
Besides saying goodbye and perhaps hugging and/or kissing them, how do they feel for having spent time with you?
Do you leave them feeling better than when you found them? Better than when you got together with them, uplifted and encouraged, or downtrodden and drained? Do you bring refreshment and joy to those you are with or do you bring total negativity and a spirit of complaint?
Is your conversation with them merely about you or do you take an active interest in them and what their interests are? Do you bore them with things they have no interest in or do you find common topics to talk about?
Most of all,are your words filled with chaste, lovable, virtuous, praiseworthy, true, topics or the opposite of these?
What spiritual gift do you bring to the presence of another? Is it a gift or a cursing of sorts?
You alone have the power, within your little member (the tongue) to lift a 300 pound person higher than when you found them!
You can bring a person up, who is down, inspire one who is discouraged, raise a depressed soul, bring a smile to someone so sad.
Remember you never know what another person my be experiencing in their life. What if you treated every person as if they were carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, and you helped them carry it or you lifted it a bit? WOW!
Just as you have the power to lift and heal, your tongue can cut and hurt another and drain them. How do you want to use that power? I choose LOVE and lifting and leaving a person far better than when I found them!
