Bad attitudes damage our relationship with God

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 May 2024

Isaiah 49:16
‘See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…’

Your AttitudeOur attitude is a very personal and internal aspect to our lives. It is how we are feeling on the inside, as a result of the things that are going on outside.  It can also include the position we take in a specific situation.  It also includes our mental state, feeling or emotion towards a fact or a situation.  Be ready – your attitude will be tested!  Our attitude is our state of readiness to respond in a characteristic way to a stimulus. This can be negative or positive.
Bad attitudes damage our relationship with God and can lead to separation from God. This is perhaps the most critical aspect of negative or bad attitudes.  It is strange, but when we develop a bad attitude, we often become unteachable. This un-teachable state affects our relationships with others and especially with God.  Example: In this example a bad attitude leads to not obeying God.

Jeremiah 22:21 I spoke to you in your [times of] prosperity, but you said, I will not listen! This has been your attitude from your youth; you have not obeyed My voice.

This is what brings division and ultimately separation from God.

Isaiah 59:2 Your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
