Big Picture Thinking

Do you know any difficult people in your life? Do you have problems? Of course, you do. When you think about the daily grind that we have, we will experience problems, and we will deal with difficult people. While it can be instinctive and natural to react in the moment, God’s best in our lives is found when we take into account the big picture and respond honorably. Thinking and responding honorably is vital to our health, because if we don’t think honorably then we can be consumed by the difficult people and problems that we will encounter. Consider the long term outcome of eternity instead of making decisions solely by how they will affect you immediately. Use Big Picture Thinking so that you honor God by choosing honorable responses to God and others.

Scripture References: Romans 12:9-21

From Series: "Think Better"

As a society, we understand health to include our medical and physical wellbeing. Healthy eating and exercise are touted as the main focal points for overall fitness. However, a facet of health that is often neglected is our ability to be healthy thinkers. It is from our thoughts that we process everything from achievement to adversity. Our thinking determines our depth and direction as well. See, every decision we make, good, bad, or indifferent, is tied to our thoughts. Thus, God's heart is that we would "Think Better" by reflecting the Mind of Christ in our daily decision making. When we "Think Better," our ability to honor God and help others improves significantly. Therefore, over the next several weeks together, we will explore what the Scriptures teach about "thinking better" so that our minds and thoughts can be healthy.
