A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E!!!

As I was studying one morning this week, 
I read this verse of scripture.....

Philippians 2:5 (NLT)
You must have the same attitude 
that Christ Jesus had!!

Since I love acrostics, I thought I would come up with a word for each of the letters in the word ATTITUDE....and find a verse of scripture to go along with it.  We should all strive to live up to each of these characteristics in order to have an attitude like Jesus!!!

A - Awareness
Habakkuk 2:14
For as the waters fill the sea, 
the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the Lord.

T - Tenderhearted
Ephesians 4:32
Instead, be kind to each other, 
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, 
just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

T - Thankful
I Thessalonians 5:18
Be thankful in all circumstances, 
for this is God's will for you who belongs to Christ Jesus.
I - Inclusive
Job 32:21
I won't play favorites,
or try to flatter anyone.

T - Trustworthy
Proverbs 11:13
A gossip goes around telling secrets, 
but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.
U - Understanding
Proverbs 16:21
The wise are known for their understanding, 
and pleasant words are persuasive.

D - Devoted
I  Timothy 2:10
For women who claim to be devoted to God 
should make themselves attractive 
by the good things they do.
E - Endurance
Hebrews 12:1
And let us run with endurance 
the race God has set before us.

 HOPE you have a great Thursday, Sweet Reader!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
