Ah, you need an attitude adjustment….
Why do you think attitude matters to God? Attitudes are important to God because they reflect the desires and motives of the heart.
What happens with us is ungodly attitudes lead to ungodly actions. How is your attitude today? Really what is your attitude about everything that is going on around you and your attitude towards those around you.
Listen to a couple of church going people in the Bible, the sons of a priest:
1Sa 2:13 The custom of the priests with the people was that when any man offered sacrifice, the priest’s servant would come, while the meat was boiling, with a three-pronged fork in his hand,
1Sa 2:14 and he would thrust it into the pan or kettle or cauldron or pot. All that the fork brought up the priest would take for himself. This is what they did at Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there.
1Sa 2:15 Moreover, before the fat was burned, the priest’s servant would come and say to the man who was sacrificing, “Give meat for the priest to roast, for he will not accept boiled meat from you but only raw.”
1Sa 2:16 And if the man said to him, “Let them burn the fat first, and then take as much as you wish,” he would say, “No, you must give it now, and if not, I will take it by force.”
1Sa 2:17 Thus the sin of the young men was very great in the sight of the LORD, for the men treated the offering of the LORD with contempt.
We see the desires and motives of these men bringing forth actions in their lives and causing great sin in the eyes of God.
I do not know how many times over the decades of my life that I have either heard husbands or wives trying to blame their bad attitudes on their spouses.
They will tell me I am miserable because of this action my husband did to me 40 years ago. No, your miserable because you are making a choice to be miserable.
I have seen some really sweet, kind and loving women be sooooooooooooooo sweet to others around them but have a totally different attitude towards their husband.
Why? Because of what is going on in their heart is affecting their attitude. That is one of the reasons the Bible says guard your heart because out of it comes all the issues of life.
I was talking with someone who was saying that they needed to change the way they thought and replace the negative thinking.
HELLO……this is what the Bible calls Renewing your Mind. A renewed mind affects your attitude. A renewed mind walks by faith and not be sight, not by senses or feelings.
A person with a renewed mind doesn’t walk around with a bad attitude because the husband forgot to take the trash out or because he did not meet her expectations.
Listen to how your thoughts affect your attitude. You want to kick out of your mind negative thoughts and replace them with the promises of God, with truth.
You are always going to have a bad attitude if you do not know how to think right. I am going to share with you how to think right according to God’s Word.
My advice to you today is to think the way God tells you to think so you will have a great attitude. Have a great day, will close with this:
Php 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
