Lifting Up The Lowly

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, August 15, 2017

A recent study showed the power of a simple compliment. Telling a proficient sales clerk, “My, you’re good at your job!” or a co-worker, “I appreciate your thoughtfulness” can greatly alter their mood and improve their performance. One man who had battled daily with his teenage daughter decided to compliment her three times each day. The practice did wonders for their relationship, and it opened his eyes to all the good things she said and did. Today we celebrate the Assumption of Mary, who thanked God for “lifting up the lowly.” We’re all lowly and can need a lift. Maybe God is asking you to do some of the lifting, too.
