Today’s Truth: The Thought that Grows

Every sin begins in the mind with a thought. It grows in the mind and then becomes an action. That action produces a pattern and eventually becomes wrapped up in sin. Paul describes this in Romans 1:28: “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”

Wicked people do not care how they live. They are so wrapped up in their own selfishness that they cannot see any different, which is why God gives them up to their own desires. A lack of acknowledging God will result in a purposeless life. The opposite occurs when Christians are careful with how they live and follow the Lord and His righteousness. When they put God first in their lives and only see Him and His wisdom, God will become involved in their lives.

As Christians, it is important that we are careful with how we live. The world is watching and waiting to see us fail. While that seems like a lot of pressure, you will find joy and peace when you follow the Lord!
