02 Feb Don’t Lose Your Mind
You’ve been given a body and a brain with a mind to think and reason. Stop taking in a steady diet of regurgitated information- be it the news or inspirational devotionals. Read good books and periodicals; read reputable writers and credible authorities and teachers on a variety of subjects. Listen to people who are wise, and of varying ages. Ask good questions and study. Do the work! Think. Think. Think! Think critically! Don’t just parrot sound bites. Dig and process and form your own conclusions based on factual information. And above all— READ THE BIBLE! Mine it like you’re mining for gold! Let God’s Word be the voice you listen to first, most and best- and quote most often.
God has given you a beautiful mind. Use it because the mind is a terrible thing to waste. And you will lose it if you just keep letting people tell you what to think.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”
I love y’all!
