Attitudes, Attitudes, Attitudes...

Thanks to Brittney DeWitt for recently posting on Facebook, Chuck Swindoll's description of attitude. I remember preaching on this specific quote years ago at ROAR. There's not a lot that can be added to it. If we'd simply live out its wisdom. Swindoll said, “The longer I live, The More I realize the impact of attitude on life. It is more important then the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what others people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day of our lives regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inventible. The only thing we can do is plan on the one string we do have, and that is our attitude...I’m convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...We are in charge of our attitudes.” Your attitudes will determine where you go and how high you go. And what's so amazing is that you are the only one who gets to make your attitude choices. What kind of attitudes will you have today? Ones that reflect Jesus Christ? Or those that reflect the world? Again, the choice is completely yours :)
