10/11/09  (Video version is edited for Words of Life broadcast)“…if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things.” Philippians 4:8b God wants us to be positive people but because of our sin natures we have a natural propensity toward being negative. Positive people attract. Negative people repel. Negative thinking manifests itself in three ways in our lives…inward, outward, and upward. In each case it perpetuates failure. The positive thing about negative attitudes is we are not born with it, it’s learned behavior, therefore it can be unlearned.  SPECIAL MUSIC at the end is Jody Lovett singing “I Can”.
