JULY 13TH - LESSON IN JOY

Hundreds of Problems - Millions of Blessings - The Joy of Perspective

 

What really matters is what we choose to focus on as individuals within our marriage as well as our business. The quality of our relationship will depend on whether we are mature enough and faithful enough to focus on what is beautiful, excellent, and worthy of praise.

 

Philippians 4:8 “ Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things or lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 

You always have a choice! If we were externally positive all the time, Paul wouldn’t emphasize this point so dramatically. If we couldn no control our negativity,his teaching would be in vain, unrealistic, and beyond our capability - with God’s help we can control our thoughts.

 

You have hundreds of problems and millions of blessings whether you choose to count your blessings or complain about what is wrong with your life, recognize that you do have a choice! Life is a mixture of good and bad.
