For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he….” [Proverbs 23:7]

If you want to get to the heart of the matter—then find out what matters to the heart!  Feelings are simply the fruit of your thinking.  Whatever the heart is ‘thinking’ life will follow along hand in hand and produce in like kind, thoughts are the power of creating what is and what shall be.

To understand your responses to this chaotic world and find a place of personal stability take a few moments and check out your thinking.  It will give you valuable clues to correct or clarify your desires and re-create the world you live in—this is why Paul said—if anything is praise worthy think on these things.  Public problems require private solutions and private solutions is what Paul is talking about—in today’s language—maintain your own sense of peace!

Having the mind or attitude of Jesus Christ will create a world of fruitful living.  It produces an abundance of peace, love, joy, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and patience.  Who wouldn’t want that kind of world—truth is how you think has the power to shape your world.  Thoughts are the turning point—the junction, the cross roads, where choice reflects not just the heart of the matter, but what matters to the heart.
