THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Posted in Philosophy, Thoughts tagged , , , , at 4:15 am by randallbutisingh

AS A MAN THINKETH, SO IS HE … Proverbs 23:7.
Taken from Flashes of Light
by Randall Butisingh.

The mind is the reins that control the senses like the charioteer who holds the reins that control the horses. If the horses get out of control, the chariot and the life the charioteer are endangered.

Thought emanates from the conscious mind of the individual. It is crucial for the development of his personality and for spiritual progress. Indeed, “as a man thinketh, so is he” Proverbs 23:7. Lofty thinking inclines a man towards happiness and tranquility, while vile thinking mars his disposition and degrades him. He can never be happy, nor can he grow spiritually.

    Kindly; allow me to refresh someone’s memory. This is a Holy Bible’s quote.
    Proverbs.23:7 it says:For as he thinks in his heart,so is he.

    Best Regards.

  2. Thanks Alex for reminding me that that quotation is from Proverbs. I read Proverbs several times, butI also felt that the thought comes from other sources. Anyhow I will use the quotation as it is from Proverbs. Thank you for visiting my Weblog. Will like to hear from you again.
