STOP AND THINK – A man’s true character is revealed by his response to adversity. (Austin Hatch, young survivor of two plane crashes and brain injury.)

Hatch, who lost his parents and two siblings in the crashes and had to learn to walk again, also said, “I don’t think I deserve what I’ve been through, but I’m gonna be fine.” And we think we have problems. We can’t always control our circumstances or avoid the pains of life, but we can control our attitude. Doing so can see us through great difficulty.

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life to put off your old self . . . to be made new in the attitude of your minds. (Ephesians 4:22-23)
