One truth from Jesus…

Jesus turned to Peter and said, “You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” — Matthew 16:23


One quote…

The ultimate freedom we have as human beings is the power to select what we will allow our mind to dwell upon. — Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart in Daily Practice

One practice…

Try moving through the next few hours with this idea in front of you: The first freedom is where I put my mind. Observe where you have put your mind. If you have noticed the goodness of God in the blessings around you or found confidence from ideas like those found in Psalm 23.

Don’t make a big deal about evaluating yourself.

Instead, pray for the circumstance or person in front of your eyes at the moment.

(This practice came from Jan Johnson co-author of Renovation of the Heart in Daily Practice, p. 67)
