No power on earth is greater than a mind and soul reawakened. (Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist)

We see demonstrations of all kinds of power in today’s world. There’s the destructive power of hurricanes and tornados. The life-threatening power of nuclear weapons is a constant fear around the world. And then, there’s power of ideas and words as suggested by Thomas. That’s the kind of power that must be under the control of one’s character and integrity.

From a wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive. (Proverbs 16:33)

So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. (1 Peter 1:13)
