Thoughts for reflection: Do this without murmuring and arguing. It is almost like Paul has been reading my journal. As I remember hearing countless times as I was growing up, it is one thing to do the right thing, it is something else entirely to do the right thing with the right attitude. Paul wants us to live a Christ-like life, not to punish us or keep us from having any fun, but instead, because it is the best way to live.
Where is it in your life you could use an attitude adjustment when it comes to being like Christ? How might you think about your situation differently to help you change your attitude?
