Fruits of a Positive Word

For the session with the Ikusasa guys today I decided to write down a positive word for each one.  This word is how I see them.

The first process was to think about each one and to remember my first impressions and how I see them now.  I have not once felt anything but respect from them and their desire to be the best that they can be.  They amaze me each time I’m with them!

Then I shared each one’s word with the group and explained why I felt this best described the person.  Well …. there was teasing, laughing and loud denials from the spectators.  However, I stuck to my chosen words and I believe each boy appreciated what I had said.  To share the positive words “tailor made” for each one showed me again just how special the boys are!

It had been a good session I thought and I was satisfied with how it had gone.  Then I was told they were going to write down words to describe me;  AND what a blessing this was! Talk about a way to soften anyone’s heart.

The fruit of a positive word is an easy tool that has far reaching consequences for the one giving and the one receiving.  I recommend it.
