"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable---if anything is excellent or praiseworthy---think about such things" (Philippians 4:8, NIV).
The Tulsa World published a good article today about some citizens of Owasso (a Tulsa suburb) who have created "Character Coins." When they see someone doing something good for someone else, they give that person a coin and ask him or her to notice someone else doing good so that it can be passed on to another person.
I like the idea for 2 reasons:
1. People are encouraged in doing good.
2. It creates a mindset in which we are looking for the good in life rather than the negative.
