#TYLA: Attitude

Ok, guys, last week I was working through some stuff and really wasn’t in the right frame of mind to blog, But here I am, I’m back and ready to blog again.

Attitude is something I think we all struggle with. Especially teens. But what does the Bible say about it?

Philippians 1:27

27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit,[a]striving together as one for the faith of the gospel.

Concentrate mainly on the first part, ‘conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.’ Do you think that people see you as a Christian when you yell at your parents? Or when you start being cruel to other people? Or is it when you respect your parents and stick up for those being victimized that you are seen as a Christian? I can tell you now, it’s the latter.

God doesn’t direct us to disrespect our parents. He doesn’t tell us to have a bad attitude. He wants us to conduct ourselves in such a way that people can see HIM in US.

Do you have a part of your attitude that could do with being changed? Is there a person you are always being grouchy with? Ask God for help. Change won’t come immediately. It takes time. But you can do it. Let people see God through you because it’s your actions they’ll be watching rather than the words that come out of your mouth.
