Your Thoughts

What do you think about? Do you know that your thoughts affect what you do? You think something and then that thought causes you to either say something or do something.
Here’s an example of what I am saying. First you think, “Wow! That cake sure looks good. But I know I am not supposed to eat it now.” But you keep thinking about the cake. Soon you are cutting a big piece of cake and eating it!
Our Bible Reading talks about our thinking. Verse 6 says, “If a person’s thinking is controlled by his sinful self, then there is spiritual death. But if a person’s thinking is controlled by the Spirit, then there is life and peace.” We need to allow God’s Holy Spirit to control our thoughts. Then we will please God.
Let God take control of your thoughts today. Then those thoughts will lead you to love and obey Him.
