Are You Looking For Good Or For Bad? You Will Find It

Let me share a very simple truth for all of us today… we are likely to find what we are looking for. Ok, what does that mean?
Well, if you are looking for the bad in the world, you are likely to find it. And, if you are looking for the good, you are likely to find it as well. We have a tendency to find what we are looking for.
Proverbs 11:27 says, “If you search for good, you will find favor;
but if you search for evil, it will find you!”
So, whatever you are searching for, you are likely to find. So are you looking for evil? Are you looking for the bad in the world? You can find it. Just ask a few people how the country is doing and more than likely, at least one is going to give you all the bad. For that matter, talk to a few people at your place of work and ask them how things are going at work and you are likely going to get the bad.
But, if you want to find the good, you can get it as well. If you try to find someone who is fairly positive about the country or work, you can find it. You may have to look a littler harder but, if you try hard enough, you can find it.
So, the choice is ours. You looking for the bad? It’s there. You looking for the good? It’s there too. So, the choice is yours.
A wise man and a pupil sat at the gate of the city. A traveler came up to the city and asked, “What kind of people live in this city?”
The wise man asks, “And who lives there where you came from?” the wise man asked?”
“Oh the bastards and thieves, spiteful and depraved. However, that’s why I went out with joy.”
The wise man replied, “Here is the same.”
Then, after some time, another traveler asked about the people of the city.
Again, the wise man asked, “And who lives in the city where you came?”
The traveler said, “Lovely people, kind and responsive. I left lots of friends there.”
The wise mean replied, “You can find the same kind of people here.”
The pupil then asked the wise man, “Why did you say to one man that wretches live here and to the other that good people live here?”
The wise man said, “There are good people and bad everywhere. People find only what they are able to look for.”
