Do you - do I - do we bring OUR best every day?

What is the attitude of your heart...our hearts?

If you Watch the video clip from one of my favorite scenes of the movie Facing the Giants you will see the following:

The scene begins with Coach talking to his football team. That’s where this awesome inspirational quote comes in.
“Attitude is the aroma of the heart. If your attitude stinks, your heart is not right.”

and a couple of the kids mouth off that coach sure is preachy. This leads to an unpleasant workout, and soon thereafter, a teaching moment.

The most influential player on the team says he feels like they have no chance against the Giants.
The Coach challenges him to give his very best. He blindfolds him and makes him crawl on hands and feet (no knees allowed) carrying a man on his back for 30 yards (the death crawl).

The team watches, amazed, as the coach pushes the player to go much farther than anyone thinks possible.

After this experience - the team and their attitude begin to change and so does the outcome of their football season!  Their attitudes were affecting the outcome of their lives...their lives began to change and people around them began to change and the world around them began to change...(if you have never seen the movie "FACING THE GIANTS"  you need to see this inspirational and moving movie!)
NOW watch this clip from  Nick Vujicic

on Monday of this week on Facebook Nick says " There are stories all around us, lives waiting to be impacted. Go. Love."

Attitude - What is the aroma of our hearts? 

The words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 2:14-17
“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.” (ESV)
