I’m a day behind…we have been invaded by sickness in our home…which is a never ending story lately it seems.
This week for illustrated faith Friday i focused in on the book of Matthew that i have been reading with Good morning girls. Matthew is a powerful book filled with powerful teaching straight from Jesus.
Its powerful to know from reading His word that Jesus never passed up an opportunity to teach…He saw a crowd and took the chance to lay down some serious teaching to those there. One of those teachings was about the beattitudes… I had these thoughts as I was reading – Our attitude towards life should be a BE-Attitude…..let me explain.
Jesus in His word tells us that these things will make us blessed. We live in a culture that wants our own way, we are only happy if things are going perfectly in our lives and we certainly don’t feel blessed on bad days. In the beattitudes Jesus tells us that even in struggles, hardships, and grief we will be blessed. If we change our attitudes toward our situations and be what God has called us to be our mess will become a blessing.
Almost in the same breath Our Lord tells us that we are to be salt and light to those around us…what a great way to do just that when we change our attitude towards the things we face.
