Words of Wisdom - Take 3
that cause our lives to flow with the “milk and honey” of God’s blessing and presence. The choice is all ours.
We choose our attitudes. Sometimes it is the only thing we can choose or control, and it dwarfs our circumstances. The very same circumstance can feel like the Promised Land or the wilderness depending on our attitude.
“But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart,” Jesus said (Matthew 15:18) Our attitudes reveal who we truly are. We can get our outer behavior in order, but still be a mess inside. We can’t think in a critical, negative, fault-finding, complaining way without becoming that person. Boy, was I that person!
One day as I was searching for a devotional to share with my Christ Care group, this little story just leapt out and really spoke to me. I saved it, and whenever I feel myself going back to that miserable wilderness, I pull it out and once again I’m on my way back to the Promised Land in God’s presence and His many blessings.
So, here it is…enjoy and I hope it brings a smile to your face as it did mine!
Attitude is everything! Let’s be grateful for the things God has given us!
Have a wonderful day!
