The topic, “be a good thinker” suggests that there is a “bad thinker”. Thinking
moulds a decision taken in the mind. Our mind is the home of great ideas,
achievements, dreams, aspirations and visions. It is where success or failure is born and nurtured. It is our thoughtful decisions that determine and shape our destiny.
Thousands of men and women have succeeded today because of right thoughtful decisions they made. Brethren, poor family back-ground, poor environment or limitations is not responsible for failure but bad thoughtful decisions made. No wonder, the bible in Prov. 4:23 cautioned that the mind should be guided jealously because out of it flows the issue of life. Pride is the off- spring of bad thinking and it is Satan.s instrument of destruction. James 4:6 says that God resists the proud

In Isa; 14:12-20, Lucifer (Satan), a farmer archangel was dethroned from heaven because of bad thought decision to sit above God.s throne and rule mankind.
The book of Prov. 9:10 says that for you to be a good thinker, you must love

under the shadow of the almighty and whatsoever he does prosper because he is in the eyes of God- Psalm 9:1.
