Choose your perspective!

There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. ~W. Clement Stone

I saw the best insurance commercial last night. It contained the exact same phrases from two different perspectives.
“I can’t believe this is my car?”
“I can’t believe this is happening!”
“Oh, wow!”
“Ahhhhh!”
“What a day.”
The perspectives were a teenage girl getting her first vehicle and a business man arriving in the parking lot to find his car on blocks and stripped down.
With that in mind you can now add texture and emotion to how each said the phrases.

It reminds me that words have the power to give life or give death; words can build up or tear down; encourage or discourage.
You have power over your words.
Words often reflect an attitude. So if the attitude changes so will the words.

All the words of my mouth are with righteousness; nothing crooked or perverse is in them. Prov 8:8
It would take someone with an attitude set on God to say such as that.
I remind you of what the New Testament says, Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. Eph 4:29
