Bad attitudes

The way we behave is a reflection of our thinking.

If we don’t respect God, then we won’t be listening to him speak to us (read the Bible) or spending time talking to him (prayer) we will not respect Christians, and therefore treat them quite badly, and cause pain and even fear.

Perhaps we want to feel comfortable in a situation, and so force our ideas on others, intimidate them and “let them know who’s boss .”

This is not Gods way. Jesus walked his life on Earth with total humility- relying on God, rather than his own strategies and devices. So God kept his obedient son, and honoured him above all things.

Pride is in us all, and if we let it rule us, we will fall and fail, and ultimately we will be shown to be foolish.

We need to follow Gods way, and learn to rely on him, not our own wit, which is faulty anyway.

“Humble yourself under Gods will for you, and he will lift you up , when the time is right.”
