The Good News Is...
Welcome to Service – The Action Form of Love
The more I read the news or watch it on the Internet or on television, there’s one thing that keeps coming to my mind.
Where’s the good news?
In the past week alone, we’ve heard about probable election fraud in Iran and subsequent oppression of thousands of people, murders, rapes, fires set by arsonists, kidnappings and so much more.
Where is the good news?
It’s a sad but true fact that most news carriers would go broke if they only reported good news items. Consider the following lead in to your favorite news show:
“Absolutely nothing bad happened today in Capital City, today – film at eleven.”
Because there’s just too much bad news to report.
So, here’s your challenge for today:
Pay close attention to your surroundings. Listen for something positive that happened. It could have happened in your workplace, in your neighborhood or even in your state or country.
Then, when you have the positive tidbit, pass it on.
That’s right – be a carrier of positive news today.
Maybe it’s true that bad news spreads faster than good news. Maybe it’s not. Let’s find out by using today’s challenge as an experiment. See if the good news you passed on comes back to you.
Thank you for taking today’s challenge. Thank you for being willing to pass on the good news as well as my words. I appreciate you.
And, thank you always for remembering that Service is The Action Form of Love.
