Do You Have a Bad Attitude?
Are you usually suspicious of others? As we’ll see on today’s Creation Moments Minute, such an attitude could shorten your life.
Researchers studied the attitudes of 500 adults to show how suspicious they were of others. After 15 years, they found that the more suspicious a person was, the more likely they were to be among those who had died. The differences in survival rates were surprisingly large.
Apparently, the higher survival rate of the less suspicious is related to their ability to form more and closer relationships with others. They tend to live longer, less stressful lives probably because they have the support of others.
The Bible correctly teaches us that all human beings are by nature sinful and selfish. It also teaches us that the God-pleasing response to this fact is not suspicion, but forgiveness. God’s will for us is always the healthiest and happiest way to conduct our lives.
