I remember writing down a comment in my bible a little over twenty years ago about a particular book being upbeat and full of encouragement. So this morning I dug out that book and found the comment. The comment was about the book of 3 John and it actually says this “Good book to read before exalting someone. Very upbeat book.” Now, because my mind is so worn, I don’t remember the professor who provided me those works, but I do see this older bit of encourage from John
Do not imitate what is evil but what is good. – 3 John 11
That’s some upbeat we can strive for today. Find the good and duplicate it!
