"...because these thoughts of yours don't come from God, but from human nature." Mt 16:23
When God created the world and human beings, he saw it was very good. Since we're created by God, there's goodness within us. Don't lose hope. Believe there's still goodness in us as well as in others. He's only asking us to tell them and to listen to God. What have been God's word of affirmation for you? How can we use these words to encourage others?
