A THANKSGIVING ATTITUDE

Attitude is everything it has been said. A bad attitude will make a good situation bad while a good attitude will make a bad situation better. When it comes to the working of God, our attitude determines how we act and respond to all things around us. Life will throw all kinds of things at all of us. None of us is exempt from the weather, the principles, the challenges and the obstacles. However the difference is our attitude through it all.

When Jesus needed to feed five thousand men, the disciples had no idea what to do. All they could come up with was five small pieces of bread and two little fish. Jesus didn’t complain or get worked. He kept a positive attitude filled with faith in God. He commanded the people to sit down then started with prayer. He didn’t tell God how bad the situation was and how they were stuck. He didn’t complain about the limited funds and the unprepared attitude of his disciples. Instead, He gave thanks. The attitude of thanksgiving sets you up to receive untold miracles from the Lord. stop complaining and start being thankful to God. Things could have been worse but God has kept you through all you have to endure.

SCRIPTURE READING: John 6:1-12 After these things Jesus went over the Sea of Galilee, which is [the Sea] of Tiberias. Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were diseased. And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples. Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. Then Jesus lifted up [His] eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.” One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?” Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed [them] to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.”
