A Christ-in Attitude

 
 



"Peace! Please; can I just get some peace and quiet?!" These thoughts kept screaming through my head as I glanced over at the clock. It was around 2am, and in the apartment next door a young child was crying. Instead of being helpful, the mother only added to the situation by yelling angrily at her child. Around 2:45 the child finally fell asleep... and around 7am so did I, only to be waken by the alarm clock 30 minutes later.


Grumbling on my way to work, I realized that I let this one thing ruin my entire night... and it was already impacting my day. More importantly, if I wasn't careful, my grumbling and my bad attitude would affect others.


A friend of mine once said that "an attitude is like electricity, except it travels faster and touches more people." A good attitude is one that is channeled, and one that helps build others up, just like electricity can be used to power our homes. While a bad attitude spreads quickly, destroying the attitudes of others, just like a spark in a forest can cause a wild fire.


Have you ever noticed how by simply smiling and saying hello, you can make another person smile? Have you ever noticed that after talking to someone who is crabby, you start getting crabby? As Christians we need to be careful of the attitude we show the world, and be careful that our attitude reflects Christ (Ephesians 4:22-24).


Today, how will you handle the things that "annoy" you, and what attitude will you show the world? More importantly, will people see Christ in your attitude?

Ephesians 4:22-24
[22] That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; [23] And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
