A new way to think

Re:Verse reading–Luke 12:22-34 (day seven)

“Let the wicked man forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his THOUGHTS. . .and He (God) will have compassion on him.”–Isaiah 55:7.

What if our real problem is not what we do (or don’t do)?  What if the deeper issue is what we think–what we think about?

Jesus called us to repentance (meta noia–“to think again”), and one of the most powerful “brain changes” for the believer is a new conception of God in our conscious and unconscious thoughts.

“Consider the lilies” Jesus says in Luke 12:27.  It is word of intentional, logical thought.  Think about them!  Observe!  Consider! Let the created world guide you to some new conclusions about God!

Many think that life is hard and stingy.  Not true, says Jesus.   God is dependably generous, extravagant even.  The proof is all around us.

To have new lives, we will need to think this new thought. God is generous and good!
