Thought of the Day !!

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. – Colossians 3:15-16 (TNIV)

Attitude.  What will yours be today?

We can have an attitude filled with negativity where we complain about things in our lives.  And we don't normally have to go far to find something to complain about.  But what kind of day will that make?  Have you ever seen someone who was complaining about their spouse or their church or another person or their job, etc. smiling?  

On the other hand, if we look just past those things we can complain about, we can find something to be thankful for.  Even those of us with great difficulties in life can be thankful for something.  When we look to God and give Him thanks and live out our day in this thankful spirit, we find that we have more smiles than when we complain.  And it's much more fun to smile than to cringe.  

What is it you can be thankful for today?  Give thanks to God today for your many blessings and remember these blessings whenever you're about to complain about something today.

In the love of Christ,
