We should all keep a right attitude towards others and towards God.

Mother Theresa had only two requirements for those working with her in Calcutta; a desire to work and a joyful attitude

The stronger your natural inclination is to be negative, doubtful, critical or fearful, the more you should work at keeping your attitude right.

This prayer may be humorous but there is great truth in it: “Dear God, so far today I have done quite well.

“I haven’t gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or only thought about myself.

“But in a few moments, I’m going to get out of bed and then I will need all the help I can get!”

The truth is that we will always need God’s help to keep our attitude right, so, don’t forget to ask him to always look for the good in things and people.

Mother Theresa had only two requirements for those working with her in Calcutta; a desire to work and a joyful attitude. There is good in everything and everyone if you choose to look for it, so don’t let minor irritations override all the good things.

Jesus always sees the good in us so let us look for the good in others.

Mix with those who have good attitudes and if you are having a tough time, find someone who will encourage you because both types of people are there.
