Christmas Eve ~ Good Report

Praise is multiplied by the number of people who hear it. It is one thing to thank a person privately and tell how their character benefited our lives, but a whole different thing to tell about the character they demonstrated to their boss or a crowd of hundreds people.

Give a Good Report to Others

As of Thursday evening, the picture

A simple act of kindness is multiplied by the number of people who hear the good report.

had generated more than 417,000 likes, had been shared more than 138,000 times and had received more than 30,000 comments. It was all to tell of a simple act of kindness which highlighted the character of a police officer in New York. Do people do acts of kindness to the tune of $100? Yes, every day, but when the report of that good deed is shared with hundreds of thousands, that twenty-five year old officer is appreciated all the more.

In a day when evil is highlighted and underscored through news outlets and movies, very few people get recognition for doing good. Next time you see a deed of kindness or character demonstrated, thank the person and go a step farther and share the good report with others.



  1. Merry Christmas David and Priscilla!!! Hope you Enjoy it to the fullest with family and friends!

    The world would be a better place if everyone was kinder, yes?

    Instead of focusing on appearance and words, we should focus on actions. Actions speak WAY louder than words.


  3. Wishing you both a most joyous and blessed Christmas!!! I know that the posts over the last twelve days took quite a bit of thought and effort. Thank you for everything you have shared with all of us – friends and strangers alike.

    Don’t Quit on the Lord!
