One of the deacons in our church, Art Kixmiller, shared this recently. I always appreciate the extra push in the "others-centered" life style. He titled it "6 Important Phrases." I share it with you as another one of those gentle reminders that we all could use from time to time.
#6 "I admit I made a mistake"
#5 "You did a good job."
#4 "What is your opinion?"
#3 "If you please..." He admitted this one is a little outdated and emphasized "please".
#2 "Thank you."
and the number one important phrase to Art?
#1 Anything involving the word "WE".
While we're on positive phrases, here are a few Kid President had to share on Facebook recently.
A few things we should all say more:
1. "Thank you." 2. "Please." 3. "Here is a surprise corn dog I bought you because you're my friend."
"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." - Ephesians 4:29
