LMA Victims vs. Victors Statement #1
Victims worry about who is to blame - Victors find a way to make a difference.
Statement 1 points out the habit of always blaming others for any problems in our lives. We have all been wronged, and we have all wronged others, so let us find a way to make a positive difference in the world around us.
Philippians 4:8 (TPT): So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.
Philippians 4:8 (Mirror Bible): Now let this be your conclusive reasoning: consider that which is true about everyone as evidenced in Christ. Live overwhelmed by God’s opinion of you! Acquaint yourselves with the revelation of righteousness; realize God’s likeness in you. Make it your business to declare mankind’s redeemed innocence. Think friendship. Discover how famous everyone is in the light of the gospel; mankind is in God’s limelight! Ponder how elevated you are in Christ. Study stories that celebrate life.
BE honorable. BE respectful. BE merciful and kind. BE!
