May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 HCSB
Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings – always darker, emptier, and simpler. Friedrich Nietzche*
Have you ever wondered how life would be different if you were able to hear the thoughts of other people? What would it be like to know the real price of a vehicle in the dealer’s head? How would your life be different if you could read the mind of every teacher who ever asked the class a verbal question? How would your marriage be different if you could read the thoughts of your spouse?
Now let’s put a twist on the above questions.
How would you do business if you knew the other person could hear your thoughts? If your teachers and mentors always knew what you were thinking, would you try to think different thoughts? What type of marriage would you have if your spouse could always read your mind?
God knows what we are thinking all the time. Since that is the case, what type of thoughts should we be thinking?
Lord, have Your way in my thoughts.
