Attitude and Behaviour more Important than
words!

      Pro 16:32 ―Better to be slow to
      anger than to be a mighty
      warrior, and one who rules his
      temper is better than one who
      captures a city.‖
Attitude and Behaviour more Important than
words!
Where is the Emphasis?

Col 3:12/15 ―Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and
dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy,
kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing
with one another and forgiving one another, if someone
happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as
the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others.
And to all these virtues add love, which is the perfect
bond. Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart
(for you were in fact called as one body to this peace),
and be thankful.‖
Attitude and Behaviour more Important than
words!
What do all the works of the Flesh have in Common?

Gal 5:18/21 ―But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not
under the law. Now the works of the flesh are obvious:
sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, idolatry,
sorcery, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger,
selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, envying, murder,
drunkedness, carousing, and similar things. I am
warning you, as I have warned you before: Those who
practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!‖
Attitude and Behaviour more Important than
words!
What do all the works of the Spirit have in Common?

Gal 5:22/26 ―But the fruit of the spirit is love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Against such things there is no law. Now those
who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh
with its passions and desires, If we live by the
Spirit, let us also behave in accordance with the
Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking
one another, being jealous of one another.‖
Words are also Important!
Poor Leadership
Jam 3:14/16 ―But if you have bitter jealousy and selfishness in
your hearts, do not boast and tell lies against the truth.
Such wisdom does not come from above but is earthly,
natural, demonic. For where there is jealousy and selfishness,
there is disorder and every evil practice.‖

Good Leadership
Jam 3:17 ―But the wisdom from above is first pure, then
peaceable, gentle, accommodating, full of mercy and good
fruit, impartial, and not hypocritical. And the fruit that
consists of righteousness is planted in peace among those who
make peace.‖
Attitude and Behaviour more Important than
words!

of your mouth, but only what is beneficial for the
building up of the one in need, that it may give grace to
those who hear‖

Eph 4:31/32 ―You must put away every kind of
bitterness, anger, wrath, quarrelling, and evil,
slanderous talk. Instead, be kind to one another,
