Accentuate the Positive

On Sunday, I shared an old song for 1945 that I can remember my parents playing on our 78 record player.

“You’ve got to accentuate the positive

Eliminate the negative

Latch on to the affirmative

Don’t mess with Mister In-Between.

You’ve got to speed joy up to the maximum

Bring gloom down to the minimum

Have faith or pandemonium’s

Liable to walk upon the scene.”

Our gospel lesson encouraged us to not try to separate the wheat from the weeds, rather let Gods angels do the reaping.  In the meantime, following Jacob’s lead, we can celebrate God’s presences as we discern it in our day to day experience.  We can “accentuate the positive” and “eliminate the negative.”
