Share the Good

Leave it to a beer commercial to be a source of inspiration lol The latest heineken commercial i find to be very cool!!!! Various people take a bottle of the beer and share it with someone who is so completely opposite them. They laugh or smile and then do the same to another person and on and on it goes. Share the good is the phrase stated as the commercial ends.

So much disaster has happened last few weeks. Myanmar, China, tornadoes in various states here in USA. Very hard to know how to take in and respond to such horrible events,especially to anyone personally affected. Raw emotions do not need or deserve any platitudes or phrases like a hallmark card, no matter how well intended or how good their content. Sharing the good. Being there, hugging,expressing sharing of pain,hurt,loss and all that goes with it. A time will allow itself if the person or persons want to hear about Gods presence and recieve comfort from hearing about Him. He didn't go forcing Himself upon people and neither should anyone else.

The gospel means *good news* I hope that I can continue to grow to be one who shares and reflects Jesus good news day by day and in a way that draws people,even if they have no real interest or desire at present. Just a gentleness and warmth which communicates that I care and an accepting regardless of any differences. Grace and love accept without question anyone and everyone. Share the good!!!!

Grace and love accept without question anyone and everyone. Share the good!!!! Couldn't really put it any better myself Bobby Bear.

No matter what anyone's personal beliefs the best way to be a good Christian is to care for and love your fellow man. Everything else is just window dressing :)

Share the good. I love that, Robert. So simple.

It's obvious what kindness brings to others, but I've found it's also the secret to personal happiness...bringing a smile to someone else has this marvelous effect of making your own life seem brighter, necessary, and connected.

You have a great approach, leading with love & acceptance. Religion would be a much kinder thing without the push.

That's one of the good things about this little blogging community. An easier way to share the good. Of course it isn't only that but sometimes you find the right people.
