Christ-like Attitude!

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. (Colossians 3:23)

We can not control what people say, do or the things that happen around us. One thing we can change is how we react to it. Whether it's negative co-workers, a boss that is to hard on you, or family situations, we are supposed to react with a Christ-like attitude! Remember that we are representing God 24/7 and we should all strive to make him pleased with us and show others love through our attitude! I know sometimes it feels like people don't deserve it, but remember how good our God is when we don't deserve it! He knows that we will not get it right every time and that's an amazing part of having a forgiving God!

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, "children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation," Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky. (Philippians 2:14-15)

We are supposed to be the light in this dark world! The world needs a change and it starts with us shining the light of Jesus to people through our attitude! If we aren't the change, then who will be?

  1. I don't always do the best job but I really try and keep it in the front of my mind that people are watching my life. Once they know you are a Christ follower some people will watch you closer then ever. They want to know if we live what we talk!! I ask myself everyday if my life is reflecting Him and His love and mercy. Would anyone look at me and want what I have??? Sadly, sometimes I think that answer would be no.He has forgiven us much!!! And I am thankful for that!!!

  2. Great way to start the Lords day with a good attitude! Behind the scenes in Any church is lots of preparation , hard work and Christ like attitudes. No one wants to walk in the house of God to a bunch of children of God acting like babies!!!! Getting up, putting on a good attitude . Talking the talk and walking the walk :) thank you Ashley for a good Sinday morning reminder! I love you so :)
