Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 August 4

But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.” (Numbers 14:24).

Today’s Morsel:  Attitude is a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person's behavior.  There are basically three types of attitudes. The first, is an Upbeat attitude.  The second, is a Can-Do attitude.  And the third, is an attitude of gratitude.   Upbeat attitudes are attitudes that display a good outlook on life.  They are often filled with exaltation for others and oneself.  A person with an Upbeat attitude finds strength in what they believe in.  Things such as their God, their faith, their religion, and them self.  A Can-Do attitude is an attitude that says as Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me!” (Philippians 4:13).  It’s an attitude that says we can do it and we will overcome.  A Can-Do attitude lets nothing stop them from trying.  Danger doesn’t prevent them from trying. Height doesn’t stop them from trying to climb. Failure doesn’t stop them from trying again. (Ask Albert Ernestine, Abraham Lincoln, Michael Jordan.)  These men succeeded because they had Can-Do attitudes.  An Attitude of Gratitude is a thankful attitude.  No matter how much or how little they have, they are thankful.  Those with this type attitude know that there are those who are worse off than they are.  They understand that joy is not found in things, but in Christ. They have a heart of benevolence about them.  No matter which attitude a person possesses, those individuals who have good character most often portray Upbeat and Can-Do attitudes; as well as an Attitude of Gratitude in their lives.  

Sing:  Thanks! Thanks!  I give you thanks, for all You have done.  I am so blessed, my soul has found rest.  O Lord, I give you thanks.

Thought For Today:  Attitude is everything (Parker)
