Do you ever think about what you think about? We’ve been in a series on anxiety the last month, and you can’t talk about anxiety without talking about our thought life.
New International Version
The Greatest Commandment
28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[b] 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[c] There is no commandment greater than these.”
32 “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.
2 Cor. 10:5 – “…we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”

John 10:1-10 –
10: 3 – “…and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out
10: 5 – But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”
10:10 – The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life,and have it to the full.
