Character... with Attitude
A Kingdom Leader has an attitude that is attractive and pleasing. The presence, demeanor and stance of a person in charge should be appealing to others. Instead of cynical and vain guidance, his attitude teaches diligence, patience and honesty.
Do you have a heart of tenderness and compassion for those who are around you? What ambition drives your daily activities? Do you think of yourself as better than other people? Do you show interest in the lives of others? Do you acknowledge everyone around you? Christ was an outstanding listener. Who have you listened to today?
Philippians 2:5 says your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ. (1)
We are thankful for your impact in our lives and pray that you experience His fullness today. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Character... with Integrity
A Kingdom Leader is a person whose words match their deeds. You don’t have to guess what they will do or wonder if they will follow-through with commitments. Their word has weight because it is truthful.
Can friends predict your thinking and behavior? Do you make hollow promises to appear spiritual? Do you say yes to good opportunities and change your mind later? Do you call people in advance to let them know you can’t fulfill your commitment? Do you demand more of others than you do of yourself?
Frivolous pledges are made and even oaths taken by many who want to appear Godly. Jesus told his disciples to be straightforward with their promises.
Matthew 5:37 says, simply let your Yes be Yes, and your No be No; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. (1)
We are praying for you today.
