I tried to slice a tomato the other day and my knife wouldn’t penetrate the skin of the fruit. It was a dull knife! I reached for a sharper blade, and the task was performed quickly.
It helps to have a sharp blade to get the job done!
The same rule applies to your state of thought. It helps to have a sharp state of thought to deal with life’s issues decisively and with good results.
If one’s thought is dull, decision-making can feel laborious, difficult and even confused. There may be no clear sense of direction or uncertainty about what to do. The cure is to get on top of one’s mental game—watch and pray!
Prayer is all about keeping thought in alignment with Truth and Love.
It takes work to stay spiritually attuned, but it’s worth the effort. Just like knife blades need to be regularly sharpened and cared for to perform their job well, our thinking needs to be attended to for maximum benefit.
A dull thought is next to useless. It accomplishes little or nothing.
A sharp thought is ready to conquer whatever trouble comes its way and to demonstrate the presence and power of God. It is productive. It accomplishes much. It is not caught off-guard or wondering what to do next.
Keep a sharp thought! Make the mental investment necessary to stay keenly aware of Truth. Good results from your work will rise exponentially.
