Remember when your word and a handshake meant something
Do you remember when you always tried your best to keep your word? Now it seems that many will say it doesn’t matter.
A lawyer will say “Must be in writing” Your boss may say ” I’ll believe it when I see it” Your client may try to take what they can get for free”
But I still think most people try to do right. When someone tells me, they will do this or that, I believe them. If I shake hands with someone or they give me their word, I trust them. I try my best to be honest and keep my word, why should I doubt others?
I am not saying to stop having signed contracts so your lawyer doesn’t have a heart attack. That is legal business stuff. You have to do it. What I am saying is let’s stop letting the “bad” “untruthful” and “liars” turn our perspective into “doubting Thomases”
As the saying goes “What you put out there, comes back to you”
Today I will trust everyone! I will not let the negative people make me negative! Let the good guys win!
What do you think?
Notes from Positively Living host, Leslie Godbold: On Positively Living, our mission is to among other things, bring you news, life stories and events that may positively and lovingly touch your life. With this in mind, I want to remind you of an event happening 8pm tonight on the History Channel, The Bible series.
I am excited and looking forward to “The Bible Series” airing on the History channel tonight Sunday 3/3/13 at 8pm EST. There is much negativity and anger in the world. But I believe there is more positive and good that outweighs the bad. One of the positive and good, is airing tonight. I ,and I hope you, will be sitting in front of the televisions, computers, etc watching the first episode of the 10 hour mini series The Bible”. So often I am asked, “Did you watch the bachelor, dancing with the stars, the voice, etc?” I have to answer No, I don’t watch that. But tonight I will be watching the all time Reality show “the Bible”. Based on the living word of my Father in Heaven, God, Hosanna, the One and Only true God. I hope you will be experiencing with me, life stories that bring joy, love and inspiration to me personally.
Positively Living guest Clint Parker co-owner of the Weaverville Tribune shares his experiences on “Believers and Community Newspapers” Clint Parker will share with you his life experiences dealing with inspirational parents, prison ministries, working and creating in the newspaper industry while we discuss the impact of community newspapers. Please join us tomorrow , Sunday March 3, 2013 on 1350am WZGM in WNC or listen online at Tune In
Notes from Leslie: We hope our next episode of Positively Living will open your eyes to the different connections and involvements of our guest, Clint Parker’s story. Is time removing important community connections? Connections that once gone, may push each of us away from our neighbors and community concerns? Pushing us closer into “Me, me, me ” instead of Caring for our neighbors. If we are surrounded only by like minded persons, how can we connect with those in need? Thank you to our Father, Clint Parker, our listeners and readers and the Positively Living crew for contributing to this episode.
On our last episode of Positively Living, our guest was Jeff Brooks. Jeff is the senior pastor of Amazing Grace Church and co- director of Alpha-NC-West. Jeff shared his life story with us. Some of Jeff’s life experiences include rebellion, drugs, taunting God in very high places and that life changing call. Join us to learn how and when God stopped Jeff in his tracks? It is a story that may make you rethink some words you have heard before. Or it may do to you what it did for me, uplift and bring joy to my heart. You see, we believe at Positively Living, the Good News that refuels us and puts joy in our hearts may touch you too. Do you party with your friends and try to find that thing that is missing in your life, heart, soul? You may try to find it in that drink, smoke or drug. Maybe you are looking for the thing that makes you feel the warmth and belonging in sex, jumping out of a plane, joining a gang or some other activity that leaves you good for a moment but just Doesn’t last. We say to you ……Keep your ears open and one day you will see that God is calling you. Yes You! Answer him and find that deep down love, we all need!
