You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24)
Several thoughts cross our minds every single day, with one study claiming the number to be around 70,000. While that number is staggering enough, more than the number of thoughts, what is important is the quality of our thoughts. Because all those 70,000 thoughts are hidden from men. No one sees our thoughts. We may easily say one thing, but think another.
So, as people who are one in Christ, let our innermost thoughts be aligned with Christ’s. Let us choose thoughts that are right and pure over thoughts that are wrong and evil. Because what we think is who we are.
