Keeping it positive

True story. A man walked into a blood bank where he had previously donated. Looking up his record showing his blood type, the receptionist said, “Oh, B-positive!” “I try to be,” he said.

A reason to be optimistic

If anyone tried to be positive, it was the apostle Paul. In spite of being under house arrest, he wrote what may be his most upbeat letter—what we call Philippians.

How could he be so positive? 1) He could see much good resulting from his suffering, and 2) he anticipated the reward awaiting him.

Sharing Paul’s perspective

When we have what he had, we can say what he said, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!” (Phil. 4:4).
