Phil. 2: 5 -11 “ 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ”
An Ode to Attitude
Attitude! Your mind is a movie, and you’re the director!
Morgan Freeman “Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life. Don’t allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence. ”
Discriminate against thoughts, not against people.
John 1: 1 -2 “ 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. ”
Thomas Browne “I am not so much afraid of death, as ashamed thereof, 'tis the very disgrace and ignominy of our natures. ”

Dr Martin Peppard “These Hymns have verse form, stanza, rhythm and rhyme. , and they are lyrical, poetic, rhapsodic and ornate. ”
“ 5 Think like Jesus thought: 6 He was every bit God But regarded it not 7 He made himself nothing Lowering His voice Abandoning choice 8 He made Himself into a man Becoming a slave He stooped to the grave By the shame and the pain of a cross 9 So God lifted Him up Right to the top And He gave Him The NAME 11 That all will proclaim and loudly exclaim "Jesus Christ! The Lord Overcame! All my shame, all my blame All my pain!” And they glorify God They’re amazed and they’re awed!”
Acts 17: 28 "28 for “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring. ’"
1 Cor 10: 13 “ 13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. ”
Grasping the wrong truth is the easiest route into temptation.
Phil. 2: 12 -13 “ 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. ”
