The truth is, we can work ruin by either extreme:

  1. Give nothing but compliments.
  2. Offer only criticism.

Words that compliment and words of criticism both strike like arrows, and they seldom miss their mark.

  1. Hello! While I don’t mind you reproducing these brief introductions and pictures from my posts on your blog, I prefer you link to my original post (on my blog) when you say: “To finish reading this article, please head over to . . .” –rather than linking to ChristianBlessings.

    I looked for a way to contact you, but the comments section was the only way I could see to do it.

    Thank you, and God bless.
