Colossians 3:12, MSG
So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.
As a parent, sometimes you pick out clothes for your children to wear. Our heavenly Father has picked out something for us to wear--kindness, compassion, humbleness, being disciplined. When you're kind, people are drawn to you. When you're good-natured, friendly, and humble, opportunities will come your way. People want to do business with people they like. When we're hiring someone, a person's résumé tells us what their skills are and what they've done, but we always meet with them to see what their attitude is. Are they positive, friendly, kind, and considerate? They can be extremely talented and have incredible potential, but a bad attitude will keep them from rising higher.
Studies show that your attitude will have a greater impact on your success than your IQ. Your attitude can make up for a lack of experience, a lack of training, and a lack of talent. Make the decision every day to live in faith, to be hopeful, kind, and humble, and then watch how your life will start improving.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that though I can't change my present circumstances or my past, I can control my attitude and make adjustments to keep it fresh and positive. Thank You that I can be dressed in kindness, compassion, and humbleness. I'm going to live today with a great attitude. In Jesus' Name
