Nothing New Under the Sun?

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
Mahatma Gandhi
(1869-1948)

I had to smile as I read this, why? Well, it’s not the first place I’ve read it; although its possible that many might think this statement is original and credited as such.

Check this out:   Proverbs 23:7  For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Doesn’t this say the same thing?! The book of wisdom in the Bible recorded this “quote” long before Gandhi!

I’ve actually heard of practices very similar to Christian beliefs existing in unknown native tribes upon the discovery of their existence. I find this fascinating. God loves us so much, we are made in His image, and we can see that imprint! Of course, I’m not saying that our hearts don’t turn away. I think Gandhi and Solomon have accurately stated they can!

So, what are you thinking about?
