Don’t be idle! Stay busy! Don’t allow your mind to be consumed with nothing! If you keep your mind occupied, you will have more time to be productive and less time to waste on people, places, and things that don’t matter; less time to be intruded by unwanted occupants. Entrance is difficult in a crowded field where there is limited space. Keep your mind occupied; keep the devil out! Don’t let evil thoughts make a home in your mind or heart. If you don’t think it, you can’t do it! Actions start from thoughts! Controlling your thoughts is important. Proverbs 4: 23-27 provides sound counsel:
23″Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
24 Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead;
fix your gaze directly before you.
26 Give careful thought to the paths for your feet
and be steadfast in all your ways.
27 Do not turn to the right or the left;
keep your foot from evil.”
Don’t let evil thoughts set up shop in your mind. Guard your thoughts. Listen to the cognitive insights pumped by your heart. Let them guide you. Be of strong courage to follow its dictates. Remember – What’s inside always flows out.
