ARE YOU A FOUNTAIN OR A DRAIN?

I really liked this post from MAPD - Making a Positive Difference on Facebook Monday and wanted to share it with you:


When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion. ~Dale Carnegie

Everyone you come into contact has feelings. Some show them often, others hide them from everyone.

But know that your words (positive AND negative) have a lasting effect on others. Whether you're being sarcastic, mean, teasing, frustrated...they have an effect.

What effect do you want to have on others? Do you want to be the one who brings them down? Or builds them up?

You can either be a fountain or a drain...what will you choose today?


Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.  Ephesians 4:32

It's interesting to think about those who "drain" me and wonder if I behave that way...and also those who are "overflowing fountains!"

I wonder that about myself, too! Good thoughts.
