Harnessing our thoughts
There is a saying that goes something like this - "You are what you think!" Have you heard it before? I know that there is plenty of pop-psychology out there, and most of it is pretty dodgy. However, it is a biblical notion that our minds impact our actions. Read Philippians 4:8 if you have a chance.
Anyway, this morning I read 2 Corinthians 10:5,
"...bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ."
This speaks of our choice to harness our thoughts and to allow them to honour Christ. If we control our negative and sinful thoughts, then it helps us to live in obedience to Christ.
So, what are we thinking about? Are our thoughts glorifying Christ or are we allowing them to get out of control. We have the choice to harness them!
