Failure resides in the area of our thoughts. This is the reason that Jesus commands us to take every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5).
Thoughts are seeds that lead either to life or to death. For this reason, we must monitor them closely and permit only life-producing thoughts to enter our minds. Learning how to monitor one’s thoughts takes practice – and lots of it.
Years ago, a friend of mine asked her three-year-old son what he was thinking about. He said, “I’m thinking about what I’m thinking about.” What wisdom out of the mouth of a babe!
Let’s be like that three-year-old little boy. Let’s make it a habit to think about what we’re thinking about.
