Beware of Stinking Thinking

This world will try to get you to think one way. God wants you to think differently, His way.

Proverbs 23:7 says “what you think in your heart, determines who you are and who you will become.

Romans 12:1-2 says we should stop thinking the way the world thinks and start thinking the way God thinks.

Philippians 2:5 says let your (mind) thinking be just like Jesus (mind) thinking

1st Corinthians 2:16 tells us that when we give our lives to Jesus, God puts the mind of Christ in us. 

As followers of Jesus we can know and understand what Jesus thinks and why he said what he said and did what he did.

People will try to get you to think the way they want you to think. That way they can influence you or even control you. Sometimes times to get you to do the right thing but sometimes to get you to do the wrong thing.

2nd Corinthians 10:5 tells us to take all our thoughts to Jesus Christ and make sure they match up with his thinking.

Who do you think you are? Who do others think you are?

Does that match up with who God says you are.

What you think about your self is very important. It will influence:

  1. your choices
  2. how you live
  3. who your friends are
  4. how you treat others
  5. how you treat yourself.

In Mark 12:31 Jesus said “love others the way you love yourself”

I want to encourage you. Don’t just think the way the everyone in this world tries to get you to think.

Learn to think the way God wants you to think.
