Have you had your JOY JUICE today? Hope it was top of your agenda this morning!
We’ve been talking this week about our choices and how important it is to take responsibility for our attitude and our actions! John Maxwell reminds us that “If you want today to be a good day, you need to take charge of the way you look at it.”
When we display a good attitude, we are showing that we value the people God has put in our lives. “You can’t dislike people and have a good attitude at the same time. Think about it: Have you ever met anyone who always treated people badly but had a positive attitude? Likewise, you cannot have a bad attitude and encourage others at the same time. Encouraging others means helping people, looking for the best in them, and trying to bring out their positive qualities. That process drives negative thoughts right out of your head!” (Make Today Count)
Philippians 2:5 tell us: “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.” Would you say that you pass that test? Does your attitude replicate the attitude of Jesus….one of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control.
Though none of us will ever measure up to Jesus, we can pray that the Lord will help us to become more and more like Him every day. May we choose to treat everyone with the same kind and JOYful attitude that Jesus modeled before us.
Drink the JOY of Jesus and allow Him to mold your attitude to become more like His!
