Negativity sucks all right but it is here to stay til' Jesus comes.
You may have a beautiful white blouse and get a small dot of black on it and what was something you were proud of suddenly becomes something you are ashamed of.
You may have a good kid, not great but a good, one you would call a normal child and he/she does a dumb thing and both the child and family have to live with it from then on.
GOD'S first kids Adam and Eve fit that category and the human race has had to live with the consequences ever since.
The Christmas office party where people let their hair down, leaves some without respect from then on. People may laugh about it but there will always be an undercurrent of disdain.

We are forced to overlook and compensate for lowering standards in conduct, attitudes, and lifestyles. Some would call this democracy in action while others would understand that there is a force of evil at work in the world. The conflict of good and evil can never be resolved the only answer is to start over without the presence of negativity.
Meanwhile we need do to with what we have and make the best of it by resisting evil in all its forms even though it may not be popular by those who have given in.
Many people have declared the end of the world is nigh only to be proven wrong but no can deny we live in apocalyptic times. A time when we face the times revealed in the book of Revelation 21:1 "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea".
Until that time we must find a way to tolerate one another and as much as lies within us, or as Romans 12:18 says If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
" The cycle of God, the good, is broken by a single act of negativity. The cycle of negativity is stopped by choosing the good -- not just once, but again and again until it is goodness that prevails in your life and in our world altogether." JOHN MORTON,
Negativity sucks away energy. If part of the negativity stems from your attitude or perspective, commit yourself at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you. TERRY ORLICK,
Matthew 5:3,9 "Great blessings belong to those who know they are spiritually in need. God's kingdom belongs to them. Matt:9 Great blessings belong to those who work to bring peace. God will call them his sons and daughters.
