Our attitude is important to God. See Philippians 2:5 JB Phillips -- "Let Christ himself be your example as to what your attitude should be." or the edition I used in the 1960s, (Phillips; 1958): "Let Christ Jesus be your example as to what your attitude should be" What kind of attitude did He exhibit? What characterized His behavior toward others? One has summed up the mind of the Christ as: (1) The selfless mind--Do you choose to put on Christ and His attitude or were you influenced by the world system (kosmos) which incessantly promotes and "exalts" selfishness (2Ti 3:1-2, 3:3-5). Robert Murray M'Cheyne (2) The sacrificial mind; (3) The serving mind. Jesus Christ was humble, willing to give up His rights in order to obey God and serve people. Like Christ, we should have a servant's attitude, serving out of love for God and for others, not out of guilt or fear. Remember, you can choose your attitude. You can approach life expecting to be served, or you can look for opportunities to serve others. See Mark 10:45 for more on Christ's attitude of servanthood. LASB
