How do your thoughts dictate your actions? When you face a situation, such as a car pulling out in front of you and are choosing how to respond, your brain filters historical data in order to make a decision. In order to respond accordingly, your mind filters what people have told you about the situation, the consequences involved if you do not respond appropriately, historical data in relation to other car related collisions that you may have experienced... in your life time, and even what you believe God wants you to do in that given situation. The amazing thing to consider is that the human brain is able to make these calculations and process the data in nano seconds so that you might make the best choice. Add to that process, the promise that you have been given the mind of Christ, if you have invited Him into your life (1 Corinthians 2:16). If all of that is true, then why do we often times make bad choices?
