Things Stink the Way we Think

There’s one thing that wise people throughout the ages have agreed on, and that is that our thoughts shape what we become. I heard a story about a cranky old man who made a visit to see his grandchildren, and, after having upset everyone in the house, decided to take a nap. His grandsons thought they’d play a trick on him by coating his moustache with some very mature cheese. When he woke up he stormed outside, complaining that the room stank.But then everywhere he went in the house he found it was the same. Eventually he went into the garden only to discover that the whole world stank.
So it is when we fill our minds with negativism. Everywhere we go and everyone we meet will seem to carry the odour that’s in our mind. That’s why the Bible says: ‘As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. So fill your minds with what is the best, not the worst,’ and let it transform you.
