right thoughts

"Didn't Think" | E. J. Waggoner

“Didn’t Think”

Didn’t Think.—When reminded of the performance of some misdeed which comes very naturally to us, we are prone to excuse ourselves with the statement, “I didn’t think.” That is a mistake. True, we did not think of the right thing; but our performance of the deed was due to the fact that our thoughts were unconsciously running in that channel. “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” Matt. 12:34. “As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Prov. 23:7. If a man did not think evil, he would not do evil.
