Chapter 12: Wow, What a Hit! (pg 84)
Quote of the Day:
“I heard a self-help guy say once you could look in the mirror and give yourself something he called positive affirmations, like saying to yourself you are good or smart or talented. I don’t know if that works, to be honest. Maybe it does. But I do know one thing that works every time – it’s having somebody else say something good about you. I think that’s how we were created, you know, to get named by people this way. I think God speaks something meaningful into our lives and it fills us up and helps us change the world regardless of ourselves and our shortcomings. His name for us is His beloved. He hopes that we’ll believe Him like I came to believe what the coach said about me. He hopes we’ll start to see ourselves as His beloved rather than think of all the reasons that we aren’t.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 87
Colossians 4:6 “Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.”
Putting Love into Action:
Say something good about someone else today. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive. Change the world with the words you speak about someone else.
Bob talked about the words of enocouragement people say to us – they not only have shelf life, but the ability to shape life! What words have been spoken into your life that have shaped you into a better person?
