STOP AND THINK – Men are often thoughtless: “[They] will not reflect on the end of their present course, and the sure consequences of their present days.” (J. C Ryle, 19th century Anglican bishop)
Speaking to young men, Ryle continued, “[They] wake up to find they are damned for a lack of thinking. Young men know little of the perils around [them], and so . . . are careless how [they] walk. We should not restrict those words to young men, because it seems that thinking is passé among men and women of all ages. And how we think determines how we live.
Apostle Peter: “I have written both of [my letters to you] as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. (2 Peter 3:1)
