10 Rules For Improving The Church

Love this so just had to share it. Enjoy! 🙂

 

 

TEN RULES FOR IMPROVING THE CHURCH

  1. TELL YOURSELF OVER AND OVER THAT SINCE YOU ARE NOT PERFECT, YOU WOULD NOT FIT INTO A PERFECT CONGREGATION IF ONE EXISTED.

  2. INSTEAD OF PICKING OUT THE WORLDLY MEMBERS TO POINT TO, PICK OUT THE SINCERE, DEDICATED, SPIRITUAL MEMBERS AND THANK GOD FOR THEM.

  3. IF YOU ARE OLD, TREAT THE YOUNG WITH THE CONSIDERATION YOU DESIRED AS A YOUNG PERSON.  IF YOU ARE YOUNG, TREAT ADULTS WITH THE RESPECT YOU WILL WANT WHEN YOU MATURE.

  4. WHEN YOU ARE TEMPTED TO CRITICIZE OTHERS, BE SURE TO PRAY EARNESTLY FOR THEM FIRST.  THIS MAY NOT CHANGE THEM, BUT IT WILL DO WONDERS FOR YOUR ATTITUDE.

  5. WHEN YOU SEE A WORK NEGLECTED, INSTEAD OF BEING CRITICAL, OFFER TO DO THE WORK YOURSELF.

  6. NEVER BLAME OTHERS FOR YOUR FAILURES.  EVERYONE CAN BE FRUITFUL IN SPITE OF BAD EXAMPLES AND DISCOURAGING ATTITUDES OF OTHERS, IF THEY ARE DETERMINED TO BE.

  7. CONSCIOUSLY LOOK FOR THE GOOD QUALITIES IN EVERY BROTHER AND SISTER IN CHRIST. WHEN YOU THINK OF ANOTHER PERSON MAKE A  MENTAL NOTE OF THE GOOD POINTS EACH POSSESSES.

  8. REMIND YOURSELF EVERY DAY THAT THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN IMPROVE THE CHURCH OR THE WORLD IS TO BEGIN WITH YOURSELF.

  9. CONSTANTLY STRIVE TO INCREASE YOUR CIRCLE OF ASSOCIATES IN THE CHURCH. TRY TO DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR EACH ONE.

10. EVERY CHURCH HAS PROBLEMS.  CONSTANTLY ASK YOURSELF, “AM I PART OF THE PROBLEM OR PART OF THE SOLUTION.”
