“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude.” Philippians 3:14-15 NAS
In matters of faith as in life, attitude is everything. This great egret brings to mind the phrase “straighten up and fly right” – good advice in light of the motivational maxim “your attitude determines your altitude.”
In flight, the plane’s orientation to the horizon is known as attitude, and monitoring its indicator is a constant requirement particularly in limited visibility conditions.
Those in pursuit of the upward call of God know that maintaining a faith-filled attitude is also critically important, especially when stormy times cloud our vision and distort our perspective.
