Jesus gives us the attitudes that not only glorify Him but allow us to live successful lives. Just off the top of your head, I bet you can’t name the number one attitude to be! (positive?), (in control?), (authoritative?) These attitudes work well in business and leadership roles all over the world. The President of US has these qualities and needs them for his position. But they don’t even make the list where God’s concerned. God’s valuable attitudes of living include: poor in spirit, mourning, meek, merciful, pure in heart, peacemakers, and persecuted. How can anyone with these attitudes accomplish anything in life. I’m depressed even reading them. These people are the little nuns that run the half-way house for the homeless. These attitudes cannot produce success in our world. YOU’d be right! Jesus says when we have these attitudes, only then is GOD able to work through us. With God working through our empty, humble lives, amazing miracles can happen. We may not become a huge success in this world, but in Heaven, we will be given crowns of glory!
Choose the “be”attitudes for three weeks and see what a difference your life can be. Matthew 5:1-10
