Spiritual Practice

Change Your Attitude

Spend a few minutes in silence. Create a list of people toward whom you have, for whatever reason, either negative or neutral feelings. Choose one or two people from the list, and ask God to help you begin to see them through Jesus’ eyes.

Spend five minutes imagining how your attitude and behavior toward them would be different if you saw them as Jesus does. Try to see and hear yourself interacting with them. Be aware of how your feelings for them are changing and developing. Finally, offer a prayer thanking God for begining to mold you more closely into God’s image.
