Someone refuses to take gas money from you when you return their vehicle to them and you know it's sitting on empty. You explain to them that the truck is very, very low in gas and you offer two more times to give them money. Again, they refuse to take the money telling you that "it's o.k. we all take care of each other, don't worry about it." A week later you overhear them bad mouthing you to several other people because you gave them their vehicle back with no gas in it and they didn't know how they were going to get home and they were having to call a friend to give them a ride to work the next day! How do you use this situation to make yourself a better person?
You and a coworker are chatting and having a good time joking about the job you do. You leave for the day with a high spirit and happy heart because you've had a good time and you are counting your blessings for having such great co workers. You are approached the next day by the boss saying the co worker has told her you were complaining about doing your job and wanting to know why more people weren't doing one of the jobs you were hired to do to begin with and you really enjoy doing! What can you do to apply this in your life to make yourself better?
