Do you want to have great relationships? Then be a person who brings good news.
The Bible talks about how precious and blessed are the feet of him that brings good news (Isaiah 52:7).
People don’t want to have friends that are always mad, sad, and gloomy, always talking about all the bad things that are happening. People like hanging around those that have good news.
Do you remember the story in Numbers chapters 13 and 14 of the spies who went into the land of Canaan to check it out? God said it was a land flowing with milk and honey. So, 12 spies were sent in to check it out and bring back a report. Ten of the spies came back and said, “Yes, the land is as good as God says it is. BUT there are giants and walled cities! There’s no way we can conquer it!”
But the other two spies said, “It’s awesome just like God said! Yes, there are a few giants there, but we can take them! Let’s go possess the land God gave us!”
Those are the kinds of people others want to be around—people that have a good report, people that talk success and not failure, people that don’t deny that there are challenges, but they have a spirit of faith about them! They are problem solvers!
A WORD ON COMMUNICATION
THE TAKE AWAY
Make this determination: When I show up, I bring good news. I bring a good report. Even in the middle of challenging situations, be the person who brings some good news and some faith to the table!
