Do you find it comfortable to give compliments? Do you make it a habit to tell others nice things about themselves? Do you like to point out a good job or even a great attitude?
How about receiving compliments? Does it make you feel all happy inside? Do they help a bad day get better or a good day become GREAT!?
When given with sincerity, a compliment can be the best FREE gift anyone can ever give! THINK ABOUT IT.
I have to admit, for me, giving compliments is much easier than accepting them. I feel kind of awkward when people brag on me or point out something awesome that I’m doing. I know that I shouldn’t be like that. I should freely receive the compliment. The compliment is just as important to the giver as it is the receiver. We all have to keep that in mind! It’s like filling your bucket. When you fill someone else’s bucket, you fill yours too. If you haven’t heard of this concept before, it’s in a great children’s book to read to just about any age–about being an encourager instead of the very opposite.
My favorite compliment to give is YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, because to me, this is how God made all of us! There is a website: http://you-are-beautiful.com/ where you can get stickers and stuff to use as compliment givers. What a neat thing to say to someone else. It’s simple and true. Everyone has beauty to them.
