E-Cheer: Godly Balance
Not For Sale
True story - An elderly lady, who noticed my thinning hair, once asked
me if I knew how to avoid falling hair. Her answer: "jump out of the
way." That's how you avoid negativity -- you remove yourself from it.
Yesterday, I didn't get my usual nap, so I took a 1/2 nap after supper
while 1/2 listening to the news. As I listened, I realized by the end of
the telecast that this particular network newscaster seems to go out of
his way to put a negative slant on almost everything he reports. Then I
reflected on his past performances and realized that this is his modus
operandi. I can deal with that -- I just won't listen to him anymore.
We can do the same with negative people or things in our life -- find an
alternative. If you associate with negativity, it affects your depression
level. Poor Job had to deal with negative friends. He apparently got
fed up with them as he states in Job 16: 2 & 3 (nlt), "...I have heard
many things like these; miserable comforters are you all! Will your
long-winded speeches never end? What ails you that you keep on
arguing?" Job was miserable enough without having to listen to all
those negative dronings.
We all need to be on guard so that we don't give off a negative aura.
That doesn't mean we have to go overboard the other way and yuk-it-up
16 hours a day. Here's one of my favorite words again -- balance. We
need to strive for a Godly balance in our lives.
