Topic: Sin – A Killer Of Mentality
SCRIPTURE: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sin ruins sense and iniquity corrupts mentality.
MESSAGE: Life issues out from the mind. That is why the quality of a person’s mind determines the quality of his/her life. Anything that cannot cross your mind cannot cross your life. If a man loses his mind, his entire life is as good as lost. For instance, a mad man is considered unfit for engagement in any useful human endeavour because he has lost his mind. He cannot be employed. He cannot vote or be voted for. He cannot be counted during population census. In fact, he is totally insignificant.
So, mentality is a major factor for destiny fulfilment.
A man who has lost his mind has also lost his destiny. The quality of the mind determines the quality of destiny. You need your mind to meditate on the transforming Word of God. You need your mind to calculate how to fulfil destiny or organise your progress in life.
When the devil wants to truncate a person’s destiny, he saturates his mind with iniquity.
Many people have lost their jobs because they spent hours on the internet watching pornography until their minds lost the capacity to function optimally. Many young men are not able to concentrate in school because their minds are ruined by immorality. Nothing makes demand on the mind like immorality. Sin ruins sense and iniquity corrupts mentality.
Beloved, it is a blessed thing for your mind to be pure. So, guard your heart for the guarantee of your destiny fulfilment.
Remember this: Sin ruins sense and iniquity corrupts mentality.
1. Avoid living a life of sin.
2. Renew your mind everyday with the Word of God.
