Where the mind goes, the man follows. (Joyce Meyer, author)
We might wonder where evil deeds and foul language come from. There may have been unhealthy examples at home or at the shop or school, but the real source is simpler. Jesus said, “For from the heart [mind] come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander” (Matthew 15:19). It all starts inside.
For as [a man] thinks within himself, so he is. (Proverbs 23:7)
