Be a Better Thinker!

America has a plethora of problems. There’s the out-of-control National Debt, sanctuary cities, unsecured borders, public schools and universities the Left has transformed into indoctrination centers for political correctness and the blaspemous onslaught of transgenderism. But above all these things, America has a thinking problem.
Thinking is the gateway to living. Men and women most always live out what they think. The more one’s thought life is aligned with truth, the more likely they are to live out that truth, Where there is a truth vacuum, the result is a godless life void of discernment, wherein lies become welcome commodities.
The pre-Flood world got itself in trouble with God through faulty thinking that led to wicked living. Genesis 6:5: “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the THOUGHTS of his heart was only evil continually.” Its MORAL problem was precipitated by a MENTAL problem!
But there was one man who had learned to think the thoughts of God—Noah. It wasn’t long before God delivered to Noah building plans for an Ark. For 120 years he and his sons labored away until the day God said, “Come inside!” God destroyed all those whose wicked thinking had produced their wicked living.
Paul admonished the Galatians: “For if a man THINK himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself” (6:3). He challenged the Philippian church to THINK upon things true,  things honest, things just, things pure, things lovely, things of good report, things virtuous, things praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8). 
Lastly, the apostle Peter wrote: “Beloved, THINK it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you” (1 Peter 4:12).
We’re in the midst of New Year's resolution season. Many of us will resolve to be better husbands, better wives, better fathers, better mothers, better eaters, better money mangers and better time managers. I believe there is NO better resolution that a man or woman can make entering 2020 than to resolve in his or her heart, with God’s help and by his grace, to be a better THINKER!
The scriptures are truth. They reveal the mind and will of God. The more a man or woman reads and ingests the truth, the more likely he or she is to THINK the thoughts of God! And better THINKING always leads to better living!
