Recognition and Appreciation
My wife, Kathy, is masterful at showing recognition and appreciation to others. It’s rare for me to go into a retail store or business with Kathy without seeing her stop to praise someone for a job well done or to appreciate their value.
There’s a difference between recognition and appreciation. Recognition is when you give positive praise or feedback for someone’s performance, while appreciation acknowledges someone’s inherent value.
Kathy has learned that people need to experience both. I’ve seen her turn someone who was having a bad day into a person beaming with pride and gratitude.
Proverbs 12:25 teaches, “Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.”
Encourage and bless someone today with a kind word of appreciation or recognition for a job well done.
