"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Colossians 3:2
Attitudes in life do make a difference. One can have a negative or positive one. Attitudes are the way a person things about certain situations or just life. Thoughts in the mind are behind these attitudes. The thinking process is the wheel that is driving behavior.
A person can make a significant difference in life by changing the way of thinking.
It is no wonder that the Bible teaches about the mind. The mind is powerful. Certain Scriptures tell the believer in Jesus Christ to renew his or her mind and be different from the world around them. God wants a believer filled with the Holy Spirit to imitate the behavior of His only Son. The mind should be set on heavenly characteristics of love, forgiveness, humility, joy, peace, kindness, and many others in the Word of God. One must shift his or her mind from the earth to those areas focusing on God.
Challenge: Believers, it is time in this New Year to shift one’s thinking to focus the mind on Christ Jesus and those things above.
