Have you had your Joy Juice today? Hope it was top of your agenda this morning!
It’s very important for us to take responsibility for our attitudes! John Maxwell reminds us that “If we want today to be a good day, we need to take charge of the way we look at it.”
Think for a moment about the people in your life that have really made a difference for you. 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. 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 teaches: “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 humility and love serving others?
Though none of us will ever measure up to Jesus, we can pray that He will help us to become more and more like Him every day. Let’s CHOOSE to treat everyone with the same kind and joyful attitude that Jesus modeled before us.
May we drink in the joy of Jesus and pray daily that our attitude will become more & more like His!
