STOP AND THINK – Minds are like parachutes—they only function when open. (Sir James Dewar, 19th-20th century Scottish chemist and physicist)

Our minds are wonderful things. They are really the “heart” of everything—how we relate to the world, how we learn, what we choose, and much more. So, it’s a terrible thing when we close our minds, unwilling to try something new or to think about an issue from a different perspective. An open mind is the avenue for learning and growth.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2). Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2).
