Blow The Whistle

26 Oct

God’s Word:  Proverbs 30:1-16

God’s Message to Me:

“Don’t blow the whistle on your fellow workers behind their backs; they’ll accuse you of being underhanded, and you’ll be the guilty one.” Instead of looking for faults—overlook the faults—you have them too—and look for the good in others.  Then make it your business to affirm others for their good and helpful qualities.  You will find you can bring out the best in them and there will be no need to blow the whistle.

Many are prone to overlook their own self-righteousness and blame others.  They do this because they are greedy for the lime-light and attention.  So every time you are tempted to point the finger at others faults remember that four are pointing back at yourself.  If we would spend our the time trying to help others as we doing finding fault—what a better place the world would be.

Instead of blowing the whistle on others faults—use a loudspeaker to proclaim their goodness.  Think how wonderful you feel when you are sincerely appreciated.  Give that same gift to someone today.  Three good things happen when you do that.  1—You make the person feel good and desire to do even better. 2—You earn their respect and appreciation.  3—You cause others to want to excel so they too can earn appreciation.

God’s Question to Me:  Who will feel good about themselves today because you took the time to appreciate them?

God’s Promise to Me:   “Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.”

My Song to God:    Make Me A Blessing

Out in the highways and byways of life,
many are weary and sad;
are weary and sad
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife
making the sorrowing glad.

Refrain:
Make me a blessing,
Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love;
Tell of His pow’r to forgive;
His pow’r to forgive.
Others will trust Him if only you prove
true ev’ry moment you live.

Refrain:

Make me a blessing,
Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Give as ’twas given to you in your need;
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed;
Unto your mission be true.
Refrain

Make me a blessing,
Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.
