You may think that you can manipulate people into thinking the way you want them to but eventually they will see the truth and will no longer trust you so when you are trying to reach people, being real and genuine is the only jester that will stick. This pastor began to speak about how far God had brought his father, mother, and him and it began to touch me and my heart to want to be a better Christian.
He said something that really made me sit up in my seat. He said, ‘instead of being the thermometer, why not become the thermostat,’ meaning one of these instruments
can be changed by the temperature and one can change to temperature. Wow! Never thought about life this way but this was definitely something I needed to hear because
I would always say that I knew people who were just negative all the time and I didn’t like being around them because they were so negative but after hearing this, I choose to be the thermostat and change the temperature in the room because I did not like to be changed by someone else’s negative attitude.
