"Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. Likewise, you also should be glad and rejoice with me." Phil. 2:14-18
Have you ever stopped to think about the impact your attitude can have on the people around you? We have the ability to choose whether we live a life filled with the joy of the Lord or muddle through, dragging everyone down around us. As Christians, we are called to be a light in the darkness. What better way to stand out in the midst of our culture than to be full of joy, even when the world around us is dark as night. Throughout this week, be aware of your attitude and notice the difference that occurs when you radiate God's glory, power, and hope due to the promise you have in Christ.
