Renewing our thoughts is an everyday occurrence. We should all have the mind of Christ. We strive to have the mind to show love, forgiveness, kindness, and such but what about the mind to endure suffering. We must take on every attribute of Christ, not just the ones that make us look good. It looks good to give something to someone who doesn’t have, but suffering is ugly. It hurts. It is shameful. It is wrapped up in all sorts of emotions. Lord, let us accept everything that comes with the journey we are on. For our weak areas, please be our strength. Most of all, Lord, give us the mind to endure hardness as a good soldier. Lord, we need you. We need the mind of Christ!
