May 9, Attitude is Everything

Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
—Romans 14:19
I think God looks beyond the situation to the spirit and attitude. I think He is more concerned with how we react to abuse and mistreatment than to the fact that we have been abused by someone.
Some of us have had experiences of being “told off” most eloquently by people with a very descriptive flow of language; but the eloquence is lost completely insofar as God is concerned.
If you are His child taking some abuse or persecution for His sake, His great concern is the attitude that you will show in return.
Will you reveal a stubborn spirit intent upon revenge? If you resist the Spirit of God asking you to demonstrate the love and grace of Jesus Christ, your Savior, you can be sure of one thing: God will resist you! ICH1
He who does not seek and find God everywhere, and in everything, finds Him nowhere and in nothing. And he who is not at the Lord’s service in everything, is at His service in nothing. JAS179
