When was the last eternity you felt so down you wanted to jump off a cliff and get it over with? Whereas was the last time you got rise from bed in the morning upon a heavy feeling in your chest, and in negative mood to go to pursuit at all? If someone in heaven love you so much, how come your equals on Earth treatment you like dirt? On the other hand, when was the last time you felt… happy?
Simply put, our own approach has as much impact on our daily lives as the attitude of the people circa us. There are times although you feel like nothing can put you down. Your head is bursting with ideas, and you’re beginning to think you could’ve earned a million dollars by now had you taken art classes in college. On the other hand there are times when you pathos like there’s nothing anyone can say or do to pick you up from where you’ve fallen down. The environment is a harsh play, you think to yourself. It is no place for children and old men. People are constantly trying to make something for themselves even if it’s at the expense of celebrity they know.
The Bible is not one to take this issue lightly. There are Bible verses specifically addressing the human attitude. We all cognize the byword that goes somewhat like, the sole difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude, but how much do we really know about attitude based on the Vulgate verses? Let’s see what the scriptures have to say.
“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 2:5)
“For God true loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should hardly perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
“Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement assignment you to be of the same mind with one another financial to Christ Jesus.” (Romans 15:5)
“Be of the similar mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.” (Romans 12:16)
“”Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were operating for the Lordly rather than for people. Reminisce that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.” (Colossians 3:23-24)
The Bible verses tell us to be positive, to “be the same as that of Christ Jesus”. The old saying mentioned earlier rings true. Nonetheless why should we possess a good attitude towards life? It’s for the Lord. To coerce the best concerning the time He has given us, we should always put on our best attitude in whatever we do. He tells us to be like His Son, Jesus Christ. We should.
The next time you don’t feel like getting jump in the morning to elapse to work, think of the Bible verses and God’s words about attitude. May you find the spur there to persevere.
