A murderer thinks on murder, a wise man thinks on wisdom. Do not misunderstand, some thoughts can be hidden for a long time. One can act respectful to one's parents, yet if you think disrespectful thoughts, and harbor them, than you are not a respectful child, but are rather a child who acts respectful. I believe I have said it before on this blog, you must decide; do you want to look good, or do you want to be good?
Think of your mind as a fountain of water, from which the river of your actions flow. Without Christ this fountain is filthy and vile. However, after Christ has made you whole, there is no reason to continually pollute it with the filth of the world. If the fountain is dirty the river will be so as well. If you have not yet been purified, then run to Christ. If you are already clean, guard your heart.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
