You Are Contagious!

Bill Rice Ranch - First Light Devotionals 

II Corinthians 7:13  "Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all."

You Are Contagious!


Have you ever had a cold?  The only thing worse than having a cold is getting a cold from someone else!  Like a cold, your attitudes and actions are contagious.  What are you spreading?  What is your family's attitude?  Even a family can have a dominant attitude as a group!


Our attitudes will spread like a contagious cold.  If you notice that you do not like the attitudes you find around you, stop looking around you and look in you!  If you don't like the attitude you find floating around, change it!


It really is true that attitudes are caught, not taught.  That can either be positive or negative, depending on what you are spreading.  Just look at Paul and the believers in Corinth: the joy and comfort they received were a product of the joy and comfort they were catching and spreading to each other! 


If people in your workplace, your home, or your school catch what you have, what will they "come down with" today?  Will they catch comfort and joy, or will it be something else that is wrong?  We ought to be a conduit to spread what is right, good, and godly to others.  The next time your family passes around a cold, think about what else you are spreading to those around you!
