Topic: Burnt But Not Bitter (1)
Scripture: And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.- Philippians 4:8 (NLT)
Our thoughts are the raw materials for our attitudes. It isn’t possible for us to treat people in a loving, kind, godly way if we think unloving, unkind, ungodly thoughts about them. Good attitudes are fed and kept alive by good thoughts. Bad attitudes are fed and kept alive by bad thoughts.
We can have good attitudes, or we can have bad attitudes; it’s our choice. We can’t just wait for a good attitude to show up; we have to decide what kind of attitude we are going to have. Choose to have a godly attitude in all circumstances. Say out loud, “My attitude is my choice.”
Prayer Starter: Lord Jesus, please help me choose good attitudes and show me when I’m heading toward negative attitudes and bad choices. I give You praise for all these things. Amen.
