Have you ever had an ”attitude”? I’ve been told I need to straighten up my attitude. I need to get a new attitude. Even to fix my attitude problem. I feel they are all related.

I wonder what attitude helped Jesus through puberty and young adulthood? How did he simultaneously know everything yet still remain humble? Did he have good friendships growing up? What kind if a kid was he?

The Scripture is silent on these topics. But this letter does tell us that Jesus’ attitude, as One who is God, still humbled Himself to the point of death on a cross. That’s the kind attitude we are to have. Wow.

Lord help me to have the attitude of Jesus. Help me to be humble as you were, so that I may grow in faith and wisdom. To you be the glory Lord Jesus. Amen.
