The right attitude is a greenhouse for the right actions. (Keith Minier, minister)
An interesting metaphor. We think of greenhouses as places where plants are nourished, watered, and given the right temperatures for growth. Minier suggests that our minds are a lot like that. What we do and how we act is the result of what has germinated and grown in our minds. So, action begins with thinking and attitude. Be careful, then, what you think.
The wicked bluff their way through, but the virtuous think before they act. . . . The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking. (Proverbs 15:28; 21:29)
