I started using a website to help encourage me to read my bible daily. It’s usually a tiny passage that takes barely 5 minutes to read an analyze and helps me stay on track day to day. Baby steps right?
Anyway while reading today’s passage I can across one verse that caught my eye, Proverbs 4:23 which reads
” Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.”
I never read this particular verse in the translation and I was surprised by how powerful it was to me, and how true. What do you think of on a daily basis? No really what do you think of? I remember hearing that you become a slave to what you think about the most.
The minute I read this verse I reevaluated everything I was doing. I did this because our thoughts really do shape our lives and so many times its so easy to let these negative ideas pierce through our conscience and this changes us. This changes the way we live our everyday lives.
Today I want you to think about something that you have been obsessing over. Do these things deserve your time and do you want to be the type of person who thinks of those things? If they don’t deserve your time, its time you change your mentality. And if they do then you’re one step closer to be the type of person you want to be.
