Most everyone has read, or at least heard of, Norman Vincent Peale’s book, “The Power of Positive Thinking.” But no book demonstrates the power of positive thinking than Numbers chapters thirteen and fourteen, an account of those spies who were sent to spy out the promised land. We remember the names of those spies who had a positive attitude, Joshua and Caleb. Yet the names of the others are soon forgotten. A positive attitude says “We can,” while a negative attitude says, “We can’t.” A positive attitude encourages others, while a negative attitude discourages others. Those with a positive attitude will receive the rewards God has promised, while those with a negative attitude will miss out on God’s greatest rewards.
Ever wonder why no one ever wrote a book called, “The Power of Negative Thinking?” A negative attitude has no power to accomplish anything.
