Consider Luke 6:35 (opens in new window) where Jesus urges us to love our enemies, do the right thing, and to lend them whatever they need without expectations of being repaid. This describes an example where we either shift our attitudes in order to intentionally change our own behavior or perhaps change our behavior before our attitudes could catch up with them.
Briefly describe a time when you might have had to do the same and likely felt cognitive dissonance in doing so.
Can attitudes be separated from behavior? Why or why not?
