it’s your choice to make – what do you choose?

January 24, 2014

Lodge JAN 2014 - LaurenGood Friday morning to you. Still a bit nippy here. It was a minus 11 earlier this morning.

A simple thought today. At Ambassador, we talk a lot about mindsets or attitudes. Four of the mindsets we feel are especially important are:

1. Trust

2. Dependency (on God and others)

3. Growth

4. Humility

We consider humility to be the foundational mindset. Without it, the others just don’t work.

We also believe that a mindset or attitude is an intentional choice on an individual’s part. You can cultivate all of the mindsets, you can practice them and drive them deeper into your life.But, you begin with humility.

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” – Philippians 2:3-4

“Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.” Augustine of Hippo

So, what do you choose? Do you choose to walk the path of humility? If so, it will be a decision you will need to make daily.

Hope you have a great and blessed weekend!
