Your Mind Matters

Monday, March 8

6:54 AM After a week off I’m eager to get back to campus and work harder on my craft than ever before. In his book Your Mind Matters, John Stott writes, “Knowledge is indispensable to Christian life and service. If we do not use the mind God has given us, we condemn ourselves to spiritual superficiality and cut ourselves off from many of the riches of God’s grace.”

But then he adds:

At the same time, knowledge is given us to be used, to lead us to higher worship, greater faith, deeper holiness, better service. What we need is not less knowledge but more knowledge, so long as we act on it.

That, I am ready to do, with the Lord’s help.
