Topic: The Corruption of Mentality By Iniquity [Seeds of Destiny 26 June 2019 Devotional]
There is corruption of mentality that happens anywhere iniquity is enthroned. At times, when a man is unable to think very straight, it is because iniquity has confused his reasoning and corrupted his mentality.
SCRIPTURE: Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.Proverbs 14:34
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Iniquity corrupts a person’s mind and makes him to do things upside down.
Iniquity has been ingloriously reputed to be the reason behind the undoing of many lives and destinies. Life without character equals life without a future. When your character is out of place, your destiny is also out of place. On the other hand, uprightness is the secret of solid destiny. To live an upright life is to end right up in greatness.
Now, one of the tragedies that iniquity brings upon the life of a person is corruption of mentality; iniquity corrupts mentality; sin ruins sense.
There is corruption of mentality that happens anywhere iniquity is enthroned. At times, when a man is unable to think very straight, it is because iniquity has confused his reasoning and corrupted his mentality. For example, iniquity makes a man see no reason why he should take care of his wife at home. When his wife asks him for Five Thousand Naira, it causes a quarrel at home between him and her, but when a ‘Jezebel’ (prostitute) on the street demands for Fifty Thousand Naira, he runs to give her immediately. This is bankruptcy of mentality. Iniquity corrupts a person’s mentality and makes him to do things upside down.
Take the case of Solomon for example. Solomon started very well in life but towards the end of his life’s journey, he almost practically lost his mind due to his attraction and marriage to many strange women. It came to a point where he said that vanity upon vanity, all is vanity (Ecclesiastes 1:2). He saw life as vanity because sin had corrupted his mentality. Imagine that, someone who was once the wisest man on Earth went on to marry seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines as a result of bankruptcy of mentality.
Beloved, you need a solid mind to have a solid destiny; you need wisdom to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. Therefore, I counsel you to maintain a sound mind by living an upright life. Never allow iniquity corrupt your mentality.
Remember this: Iniquity corrupts a person’s mind and makes him to do things upside down.
- Make up your mind to live a life of integrity like Jesus Christ.
- Maintain a heart void of offence towards God and towards man.
PRAYER: O Lord, I make demands for solid mentality in order to fulfil my destiny. Deliver me from anything that will corrupt my mentality, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
