A person’s attitude is a powerful thing. It has a great deal to do with how we act while we are doing a task, how we think about that task, and how we speak about it. A simple example is how we approach our job, if our attitude is one of enjoyment, or one of passion for that job, it makes the days go quicker, and we have a true feeling of accomplishment about our job. You feel good about yourself and who you are.
On the other hand if our attitude is one of dreading our job, or it is just a thing we do to pay the bills, it creates stress in our lives which has an effect on our health, the days drag on and on, and we are just looking forward to quitting time so we can go and do something we love.
But our attitude about something is even more powerful than that, for it can be used to drive us to do things that we would not ordinarily be capable of. Consider the attitude a person would need to have in order to knowingly condemn a man to die a horrible, painful, death for a sin that He did not commit.
