7 WAYS TO GUARD YOUR THINKING



By:  J. Maxwell

"For as he thinks in his heart, so is he . . . Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words . . . Apply your heart to instruction, and your ears to words of knowledge . . . Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day; for surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off. Hear, my son, and be wise; and guide your heart in the way."  Proverbs 23:7, 9, 12, 17-19

Leaders understand the importance of their minds to the future of their organizations. Consider some of these timeless principles offered in Proverbs 23 about our minds and a godly vision for tomorrow.

  • Your thoughts determine your character.

  •  Be careful of your thoughts; they may break into words at any time.

  •  Don't waste your thoughts on those who don't hunger for them.

  •  The first person you lead is you, and the first organ you master is         your  mind.

  •  Don't let your mind drift away from God's truth and into vain envy.

  •  Stay confident that your vision will come to pass.

  •  Discipline your thoughts to remain steadfast in what you know is right.
