A bad attitude in just one person can spread through a whole group. On the other hand, a positive and encouraging attitude can lift an entire group to a new level of belief and anticipation. Attitudes “leak” and affects everyone who is in the group. Philippians 2:5 presents this challenge: “Have this attitude in yourself which was also in Christ.” It speaks about the humility and obedience of Jesus to do what God was calling Him to do, no matter the cost. To change your attitude, you need to change your “actions” Acting differently will cause you to think differently around others. A leader’s attitude sets the tone for everyone, whether positive or negative. No matter what unexpected disruptions, frustrations, or difficulties come our way, we are to respond with a Christlike attitude (Philippians 1:27). We must always keep in mind that God’s ultimate goal for His children is not our comfort, but the transformation of our minds into the attitude of godliness (Romans12:2).
( I remember being told one bad apple can spoil a whole basket; it’s not the apple, it’s the worm in the apple.)

WHEEEEE…WEEEEEE!!!!! “OUCH” MY GOD!! MY GOD!! Thank you Lord for your wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Forgive me for “ALL” of my sins, thought, fought, sought, deed , omission and comission. This is a mighty word, and is alway’s right on time. Lord help me to treat other’s the way you would treat them, and to be a light in the world, by drawing people to you when my attitude is appropriate. Continue to allow me to stay positive around other’s and to myself…when no one is around. Thank you Lord for your holy spirit that resides in me ,that is alway’s leading and guiding me. Immediately bring about conviction when I have mistreated one of your children. I appreciate the quickening of my spirit telling me to apologise when my actions and behavior’s are not representative of you. This conviction keeps me on the right path daily. It’s not about me, it’s ALL about you!!! Help me not to “overthink ” what you have instructed me to do, even if it will look foolish in the natural. Often times when you lead and guide ,the task could be something in the spirit realm that this person needs, that I can’t see in the natural…but due to my obedience ,one of your children are getting whatever they need through me. I am learning that by being obedient you know exactly what you’re doing, I should not ever question your instructions ( Stay out of your BUSINESS). I am the vessel that you are using at that very moment to do your will. I have to remember that you are performing your work through me, even when it takes me out of my comfort zone and it look foolish to man. HALLELUJAH JESUS🙏🏻
