Change your attitude

Daily Thought

Your Word for 17 May 2024

John 15:4
‘Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me.’

AttitudeChange your attitude and change your life.  This is the bottom line. Our attitude will either destroy us or take us to new heights.
Every problem has a solution, only if we adjust or change our attitude.

Revelation 3:19 So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude].

We can change our minds and attitude. It is a God-given ability and God wants to help us to make those critical choices and go on to enjoy more of the abundant life that He has in store for us.

1 Peter 4:1 Since Christ suffered in His body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude.

Even though Jesus suffered on the cross He had the right attitude.  Perhaps the greatest example to me is when Jesus hung dying on the cross in agony and in that state He utters the follow words: ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do!’
We started with the story of the attitude meter in aircraft. It is when the weather is bad that you really rely on this piece of equipment. In the same way it is when things are going rough that we need our positive attitude more than ever.
It is easy to have a positive attitude when things are ideal, but when we find ourselves in a valley it may be difficult but our attitude is still our lifeline!  It’s your attitude towards life (In all its facets – family, work, etc.) that makes your life great!
