Deuteronomy 26:11 And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger that is among you.
Attitude is a key word for any Christian but especially for the missionary. Rejoicing is a Biblical attitude. Notice that they were to rejoice in every good thing that the Lord had given them. So often we whine about what we do not have instead of rejoicing in what we do have. God is looking for a grateful people to follow Him and serve Him. How is your attitude today?
I struggle with this on a daily basis. I can be very grateful but begin to think of reasons that I am not measuring up. I can become too me focused. It makes it hard to function when you think about yourself instead of what God has for you!
