Have you noticed how one person’s mood or outlook on life can very easily influence whomever they interact with? Most of us won’t be quick to agree that we are weak or easily led by the opinions of others. We like to believe we’re above all that, but if we’re honest, very often having to hear the negativity of others can then breed in us and ultimately spread through us to others – much like a wild fire.
What message do you truly desire to share? What attitude do you truly desire to reflect? Most of us will agree that we wish to reflect an attitude of gratitude. If we focus our eyes and our ears on His face . . . His message, we can put out the destructive wild fire and reflect His joy instead.
“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
