It’s a new year. Perhaps you make resolutions. Here’s something to consider — A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot. Proverbs 14:30
Resolve to honor God with your attitude
The things you think.
The things you feel.
How do we honor God with them?
Consider the following questions.
Does the way we think honor God?
Are we peaceful, positive, trusting?
Do we see our situations as an opportunity for God to work?
Are we confident knowing He is in control?
Do we apply ourselves to becoming more like Christ?
Or do we just react?
Do we seize the opportunity to grow through adversity?
Or complain about our lot?
Do we believe an easy life should be a perk of obedience?
Are we offended when things are hard?
Are we easily stressed?
Do we look at others and wish for their lives?
Do we measure ourselves against others
And find we come up short?
Do we long to be somewhere else, doing something else?
Do we feel a sense of accomplishment or frustration?
Do we sleep well and wake up recharged?
Are our prayers full of complaints, worries and demands?
Or are we more focused on praise and thanksgiving?
Have we absorbed the attitude of the culture we live in or the media we consume?
Do we surround ourselves with those who raise our spirits or those who weigh them down?
Do others see the love of Jesus in us and through us?
Resolve to “Adopt the same attitude as that of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:5
It seems like once or twice a year I have to fight with my servers and solve a series of website hiccups. Thanks to Covid, tech support has been impacted, so the solutions were a little slower coming this year. After lots of Googling and support tickets, I think we have figured out a workaround so that the posts actually post and get delivered to you. Fingers crossed! 🙂
