Your attitude makes a big difference in what you do and how you do it everyday. Today as you go about your task whatever they may be ask yourself this question. "Do I have to do this or do I want to do this?
Now consider this idea too. There are many things you do that you may not really want to do, but the task must be done by someone. If you do it are you doing our of love for others or so that they will give you praise? This too affects your attitude.
You may have noticed I do not write this blog post daily as I did at one time. The reason may in many ways boil down to this question. "Do I have to write? Or do I want to write?" I can tell you when I want to speak a word of truth through the internet It is much more fun than feeling like I have to get something up on the blog. So check your motivation this morning. Check your attitude because everyone around you sees it and knows what it is. Your witness and your life can be changed when what you are doing is for the LOVE of Jesus. I mean everything for Him.
Philippians 2:5-8 NASB 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
