Attitude Is Everything

Read a devotional yesterday from my Bible app on my phone and it was one of those "Aha moments" for me. Thought I'd share it with you.

It has been said  that attitude is everything.  You are not always in control of what happens to you, but you are always in control of how you respond.  Your attitude is the only thing you get to control 100% of the time.  The Bible uses the word mind to describe your attitude more often than it uses the actual word attitude.  However, what you think about leads to actions and those actions lead to habits. Your habits develop your character and your character develops your future.  It all starts with your attitude and your mind.  What does the Bible say about your attitude?

Jesus replied, "' You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' "

Wow, when you think about that verse and you change the word mind to attitude it completely changes what that verse means.  At least it did for me.  How about you?
