Notice The Good

I want to be a woman of the rare word. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

We are so quick to offer a complaint when things don’t go exactly right. And we are often forgetful with our thank you’s when things go well.

My husband owns a restaurant. To him it’s not just about serving a great chicken sandwich, it’s about serving a life. And he never qualifies his kindness. The grumpy customer gets the same kindness as the happy one. He is a man of the rare word.

The rare word is a kind word. A greeting and thank you to every person he meets.
It’s so easy to extend pleasantries to the person who’s treating me right. But what about that moment when things aren’t so right? Could I see it as an opportunity to reach past my feelings, my comfort, my rights and pursue righteousness in that moment?

I’m challenging myself to find the good. In every situation, in every interaction, in every day- to be a noticer of the good and a woman eager to speak the rare word.
