Attitude is so important–not plastering on a happy face, but something much deeper.
Spiritual attitude. If you go through life expecting the worst, it probably will come your way. If you go through life not caring, you probably will get what others leave behind.
But, if you go through life knowing that God wants the best for you and has plenty of it ready for you, you will know peace (no matter what life dishes out). Martin Luther said it well long ago, “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
At a moment of great difficulty some years ago, a wise friend told me to do the best I could and let go of the results. It is sound advice at all times, even when things are going well.
Let’s plant apple trees today, friends.
