Attitude Rises To The Top

It's Monday morning and attitudes can stink.

Monday always gets a bad rap because it's the first day of the work week.  Who wants to go to work?

Whatever your attitude is it will rise to the top.  Let's look at a few of the disciples.
- Thomas was a doubter.
- Judas was selfish.
- Peter was head strong.

Phil 1:27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.

Paul is a great example that serve us well today.  As Saul, he would wake up in the morning with a foul attitude towards followers of Jesus.  He wanted to ruin them.  He wanted to extinguish the name of Jesus.  But . . . 

His attitude changed when he encounter Jesus on the road to Damascus.  

Saul changes and his name reflected that change.  The Hebrew name Saul means "asked for, prayed for". It's Latin counterpart Paul means "small" or "humble".  His attitude did change.  How can you change yours?

1. Start right if you want to end right.  Start your morning with God if you want to keep Him with you during the day.
2. Put others before yourself.  See the needs in others and allow your heart to be moved.
3. Fight for right.  You will be tempted to have a bad attitude.  Stop it before it starts.

PRAY: Dear Jesus, help me to keep a good attitude.  AMEN
