The Apostle Paul tells us “Do everything without complaining and arguing so that you may become blameless and pure…” (Philippians 2:14). Paul is talking about our attitude. You can approach a task with enthusiasm or dread. It doesn't change the task, but it can change you and the result.
There is really very little difference in people as a whole, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. I have seen this in my own family and I have also seen it in the family of God. Those individuals who approach their work with a positive attitude without complaining or arguing, accomplish much more, and are happier in the process.
Everything that we try to accomplish as a Christian should be defined by a good attitude. This can happen when you understand the power of a proper perspective. The power of a proper perspective has everything to do with my attitude toward God. If I really believe “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”; it will have a positive impact on my life. There is a story about David and Goliath in 1 Samuel Chapter 17 that reminds me the difference a right attitude can make. I would encourage you to review the story this week as you seek the right attitude.
