Descartes made the observation (in Latin) – Cognito ergo sum – I think, therefore I am – we are defined as human beings by our ability to think.
But we are defined as individuals by what we think.
Really we should STOP and think, but nowadays sadly, even on a church web-site, we only have time to pause for thought.
In the Bible it says “ Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things” (Philippians 4:8 NIV)
Let’s try that today – at each pause – think about such things – not the other things.
