Happy Sunday, my dear friends! I don’t know about the rest of the world, but winter seems to have finally arrived in Kansas. At least for a few days. I hope you are reading this in a warm place with a comforting drink, sort of the way I’m writing it! I’ve got my coffee with cream, my fuzzy socks, and a super fluffy blanket I’m wrapped up in while I’m writing these devotionals this week.
Something I’ve noticed in my study and research on attitude? It’s much easier to identify a good or a bad attitude when I have an example to look at. It’s all well and good to talk about the theory of how we should live or the concepts of what a godly attitude should look like, but without a practical example, can we really apply it?
So this week, we’re going to be looking at a handful of Bible characters who exhibited the types of attitudes that I personally want in my own life. There are so many to choose from. It was really hard to narrow down, but if you’ve got a favorite, shout it out in the comments. Tell us what you love the most about your favorite Bible character, and maybe we’ll be able to fit him or her into a study later down the road!
But for this week, here’s a preview of who we’re going to be studying and why:
January 17 - Jesus, Son of God
January 18 - Joseph, Slave who became Pharaoh
January 19 - Abigail, Wife of David
January 20 - Daniel, Wise Man of Babylon
January 21 - Esther, Jewish Queen of Persia
I only have about 50 others I really wanted to talk about! LOL! But these will do for now. Maybe we can do a character study someday soon.
I’m really looking forward to digging into what each of these extraordinary people can teach us about how we choose to live life.
We’re also continuing with our memorization of the Beattitudes, and this week it’s Matthew 5:7-8.
God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.
I’m praying for you this week, my friends. I hope you have a week where God shows you inescapable proof that He’s walking beside you!
