Our thoughts control our actions. These thoughts cause us to do things that please God or things that make God sad. Our thoughts make us do things that are good and helpful or things that are bad and harmful.
In verse 23 of our Bible Reading, Paul said, “You must be made new in your hearts and in your thinking.” And Proverbs 4:23 says, “The most important thing is for you to be careful in the things you think. Your thoughts control your life.”
Our thoughts determine where we will live forever. If we think that Jesus is not the Son of God, then we will live forever separated from God. But if we think that Jesus is God’s Son and that He died on the cross for us, we will pay attention to God’s commands and obey them. Then we can live forever with Him.
Your thoughts are very important. Be sure to control your thoughts today. Think about things that please and honor God.
