As we go through life, our attitudes are continually exposed to contamination or poison. Your perspective can be warped and poisoned. Attitudes are the way you think that affects the way you feel, relate, respond, and react. In computer terms, think of viruses, malware, etc., that get into your system. Many times we “download” things into our thinking through unguarded thinking & influences.
If we don’t have the right filters in place, our attitudes and perspective — our thinking — is contaminated Spiritual contamination in us creates spiritual “diseases” in us, and is spread to others.
The Bible describes how the minds of people can be poisoned. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NIV) Paul warns us “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
When your attitudes and perspective have been contaminated, it’s time for a reset!
