Thoughts matter

September 8

Daily Bible Reading: Proverbs 13 – 14

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 14:8 – “The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way; But the folly of fools is deceit.”

What is the difference between a thermometer and a thermostat? The first one measures the temperature and the second adjusts the temperature.

Our thoughts are a thermostat that regulates what we accept, believe, and accomplish in this life. You have heard, “You are what your eat.” Well, the truth of the matter is that “we are what we think and focus on.” If we think and focus on deception, we become deceivers. If we focus and think on lustful thoughts, we become lustful.

In contrast, if we focus and think on what Paul lists in Philippians 4:8, we become true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, virtuous, and filled with praise.

Prayer: Today Father, I seek to be a Philippians 4:8 thinker. Guide my thoughts and lift them to You. Amen.
