When They Say How Bad, Ask for the Good

Every day, I'm pretty sure some of us run across people who seem to have nothing good to say.  They complain about everything and they never seem to find any optimism in all that they do.  My daughter's school gave them a verse to remember out of 2 Philippians 2:14 which says, "Do everything without complaining or arguing".  I think some of us adults should learn a little something from this verse as well. 

The next time someone complains to you about something (or if you find yourself complaining), ask them this question: "Now what positive can you learn from this situation?" You'll get one of two responses:  1) They will be wondering why you asked them something like that when they were laying all the bad complaints on you thick or 2) they will honestly think about the positive points of their situation. 

Either way, you have done your part and probably have avoided feeding into their downward spiral of negativity.
