What’s a diva? Most would say they know all too well, and have often dealt with more than one. Is a diva referred to as a woman only? The answer is no. A diva “attitude” is not partial to women only…but is found also in men, teens and children too. YOU can be sure the children and teens have had role models to follow. Diva parents beget diva children!
So what is a “spiritual diva”? Yes indeed… Christians are also susceptible to having that attitude. And what’s worse, this should not be so. Our brother, the Apostle Paul ran into a few along the way. And unfortunately, this problem has gotten even worse in this day and age.

A call to the Church: Pray and repent of all wrong attitudes. We are called to a higher calling on this earth. And we need to be united and stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel. Jesus gave us two commandments; “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’” – Luke 10:27
Now, if we behave ourselves like spiritual divas…we are breaking the two commandments Jesus gave us before He ascended into Heaven. He said we would do greater works, because He goes to the Father. Repent! and return to your first Love!
Thank you Jesus, for all that You have done for us! We praise You Lord! It’s ALL about YOU!
