Change From The Inside Out

1

February 1, 2013 by eric echols

What we seek and what we think ultimately determine who we are. Here’s how this principle works:

Our thoughts shape our desires.
Our desires direct our pursuits.
Our pursuits determine who we are.

So, if we want to change who we are becoming we have to begin by changing what we are pursuing. To change what we are pursuing, our desires have to change. To change our desires we have to change what we are thinking.

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. ~ Colossians 3:1,2

One thought on “Change From The Inside Out

  1. Dan Black on Leadership says:

    Great reminder. It’s so important to have pure and right thoughts. Your post reminds me of the passage in James 1 that says,

    “When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”
