From our Exchanges

Appreciation of that which is good is an effective way of making the world better and happier. To broaden the mind, to strengthen it in high motives and honorable ambitions, it is essential that the censorious disposition be thoroughly curbed, and this can be done only by the cultivation of an honest, sincere appreciation of the good, however slight, that is discoverable in other lives. This may be done, too, without overlooking that in them which is faulty and injurious and which merits disapproval. If the mind is kept busy with the innumerable good things in the world—in nature and in humanity—it will enrich itself and it will help to create a current of influence that will lift the family, the neighborhood, the community into a sweeter, saner, healthier, happier state and thus exert a saving influence upon the world. Jesus discovered and acknowledged the good in those with whom he associated. He saw the possibilities of goodness in every one. He encouraged its development. He came not to condemn the world but to save it by evoking the good in every soul.
