Do you know someone you hate to give bad news to? Is it possible you’re that someone?
What is your first reaction when something bad or irritating happens to you?
When we get into a relationship with Jesus, and by relationship I mean taking time to talk to Him, read His word and pray, our lives automatically get filled with these things. Our minds turn from the negative and reach for the positive so when that tough situation or circumstance arises, we respond and react a whole different way. Our character becomes new. Maybe not overnight, but on a daily basis more bad characteristics get chipped away and more Godly characteristics shine through in you.
It’s like Philippians 4:8 (KJV) tells us:
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Have you talked to Jesus today?
