Living Example

Question of the day: How does your life represent Christ?

“You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”
Php 2:5 NLT

HAVING THE RIGHT ATTITUDE

How many jobs do people lose every day because of poor attitudes? How many are passed over for promotion because of the way they approach their work and the people around them? How many marriages fall apart? It would be impossible to calculate. No one should ever lose a job, miss a promotion, or destroy a marriage because of a poor attitude. Why? Because a person’s attitude isn’t set; it’s a choice. Chuck Swindoll writes: “Attitude, to me, is more important than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It’s more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude…I’m convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you…We are in charge of our attitudes.” Paul writes, “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” He always approached people with love, grace, acceptance, and a heart to serve rather than be served. So if your attitude hasn’t been as good as it could be, make this your starting point. Pray: “Father, give me a Christlike attitude toward everyone I meet.”

Reflection:

Take time to reflect. As you do so, invite the Holy Spirit. Allow God to reveal to you the areas in which you can grow spiritually. Write it down. Ponder on it. What are some ways you can grow in your walk with Christ? Until next time,  God bless you all. 🙂

    Word!! We always pray for prophecies, protection, guidance, guardance etc. all if which the Lord answers. However it is important to constantly pray for the Lord to reveal our hearts. When your heart is right, your attitude will be right. “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23 AMP).
    Thank you for this deep word. God bless you.
