Be a Thinker-1

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK ON THESE THINGS” (Emphasis mine).
A man of God I respect so much once said, “One of the reasons God gave you a brain is so that you will give him rest”. The truth is that God gave you a brain, so he will never think for you!
The use of your brain is strictly your responsibility. We humans have a God given privilege to have the large brains we have. Do you know that human beings have the largest and most developed brains of all creatures? Think about the size of a bird or an ant’s head. How small their brains must be!
Of a truth their brains might be very small, but some of those animals and insects use theirs more than humans do theirs. That sounds funny, but it is true. In case you don’t believe me hear King Solomon:
Proverbs 6: 6 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise”
Proverbs 6: 7 ‘Which having no guide, overseer or ruler”
Proverbs 6: 8 “Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.”
Proverbs 6: 9 “How long wilt thou sleep O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?”
Solomon was simply saying in summary, “The ants use their brains well. Despite not having a ruler, they know how to work hard in summer so as to bring in the harvest, unlike some men who can afford to sleep all through the year. He challenges man to learn wisdom from the way an ant thinks.
The truth of the matter is that God gave us a brain and expects us to use it well to solve problems on earth and bring glory to his name, but sadly many have refused to use their head.
Permit me to share this “fictitious story” I once read with you. A man went into a store to buy some brains.
To be continued…
