News Item 332. Mishlei 18-14 (Attitude)

A new proverb was added to the Mishlei section on Monday July 30.

How does a person develop a positive attitude. He needs to believe that no matter what is going on in his life, good things are coming. A person needs to have a rational basis for believing that hope in the future is justified. Such a basis exists when he believes he has been created for a purpose, and that his Creator wants to see the purpose fulfilled. Also, whatever that purpose may be in each individual case, the underlying framework is a world of kindness.
