Good, better, best. I think it is better to think things this way to slowly eliminate the negative thoughts that accumulate in our minds. Whenever something unlikely happens let us just consider it as good and aim for a better result next time. For if we consider it as something negative then it is difficult to eliminate from our system something that we keep on fighting. We should be thankful instead that we are still given the opportunity to improve things. Every situation is an opportunity either for growth or destruction; the choice is ours. And if we are to improve ourselves then let us start with a positive attitude coupled with a positive outlook until the good becomes better and the better becomes best.
As much as possible we will ignore negative people and focus only on our growth; they do not share our mission anyway. Let us just do our thing and follow what the Spirit within us compels us to do. Even Jesus in his own time did not condemn the Pharisees, the High Priest Caiphas, nor Pontius Pilate who allowed him to be crucified. He just focused on his mission-on what the Father ordered him to do. He was born for that mission.
Similarly, we have different missions. Let us stop joining the club of condemners. If you feel you have the heart of a peacemaker then start the work now. We could not be peacemakers by counterattacking troublemakers with their own tactics. God already know what to do with them. Let us begin our mission by using God's weapons of love and understanding. True love casts out fear. This we must never forget. And we must always remember, God's power is greater than any power on earth if He choose to show it. As long as we believe that miracles happen it will really happen.
