A Right Attitude

“Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.” [‭‭Colossians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬]

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” [Matthew 5:16 NIV]

These seem like great verses to remind us all about how to behave towards others, the right kind of attitude we should be employing every day. Just to ensure that the light we are shining brightly reflects well on the good deeds of our Father in heaven and brings Him glory.

It seems an especially good reminder in light of the current conversations, comments and opinions flying around in regard to the EU Referendum. I liked this article too as a reminder of what the Bible says about politics.

Whichever side you vote for, we are first and foremost followers of Jesus, so let’s take  our lead from Him and His word, and take care in ensuring that the strength of our opinions don’t see us become opinionated. Remember ~ to have an opinion is to share something that you believe. To be opinionated means you think your opinion is right, and whoever disagrees is wrong or stupid.

Just a thought, amongst all the other thoughts. Ignore me if you think I’m out of line. Let’s lead well in ALL things, however passionate we may feel about whatever we are talking about.

One thought on “A Right Attitude

  1. I appreciate the excellent points you brought up in your post as well as the link to the Relevant article. As you know, we too are experiencing some pretty significant political woes on this side of the pond. All I can say is I vote based on my Christian values thus whomever reflects most of those said values. Voting can still be a crap shoot as there seems to be too many “wolves in sheep’s clothing” these days but at least we still have the freedom to vote!!
