  • COLUMN: As a man thinketh ...

     “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). Our thoughts affect our behavior for good or evil. If a person dwells on negative thoughts that person will become negative and pessimistic. If we fill our minds with good thoughts, we will do good things.

    There is a relation between our thoughts and our behavior. What we think about, we do. If we fill our thought life with wholesome things, the result will be seen in every area of life.
