Finding the Best

When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves. (William Ward Ayer, late American pastor)

In a society that too often is self-centered, many people do not seem to understand that they are part of a larger community. To them, it’s always looking out for their own interests and advancements. Others have discovered the truth of Ayer’s observation. It’s a joy to see and appreciate the positive traits in others and a double joy to discover your own strengths.

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25)
