DCLM Daily Manna 22 May, 2018 by Pastor Kumuyi – Damning Thoughts

Topic: Damning Thoughts [DCLM Daily Manna Tuesday May 22, 2018]

Text: 2 Kings 5:20-27 (KJV)

Key Verse: “But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master hath spared Naaman this Syrian, in not receiving at his hands that which he brought: but, as the LORD liveth, I will run after him, and take somewhat of him.” (2 Kings 5:20).

There is a very close relationship between our thoughts, character and conduct. Repeated actions reveal our inner character and the thoughts process that produced them. Every wrong action, crime and evil has been preceded by a wrong thought pattern and evil rationalization. The effects of the actions, which such unchecked thoughts lead to, are usually damning.

Gehazi’s thought patterns moved him to acts of covetousness that earned him a curse. He must have reasoned that his master, Elisha, did not act rightly by rejecting Naaman’s offer and swore not to fail to collect them himself. His thoughts led him to a chain of sins: told lies and obtained the gifts by falsehood. His action displayed disloyalty, rebellion and unfaithfulness. For all these, he became infected with leprosy, lost his ministerial opportunity and had to live a secluded life without even enjoying the booties. DCLM Daily Manna 22 May

People do not just fall into temptation in a moment. The predisposition to sin begins with evil thought. As Christians, we must watch the thoughts we allow our minds to stay on. We must be prompt to resist and reject thoughts that suggest evil and bar them from taking root. It is also important that when we do not understand the position and actions of our leaders, we rather keep quiet and just follow in obedience. Trying to rationalize their actions may breed wrong actions.

We must watch our thoughts, especially those that lead to covetousness. Also, we should think on things that are true, just, pure, lovely and of good report. We can overcome when we choose to focus our minds on the word of God and the things that edify.
