as you think in your heart

Psychologists have discovered that the human brain’s responses to an imagined event are the same as if the event had actually occurred. I knew this years ago when I declared that if a man looks at a woman to lust after her he has already committed adultery with her in his heart. This principle is not limited to adultery. Are you diligent to avoid the commission of sin? How well do you control your thoughts? It is easy to stand in judgment against those who fall. Yet how many of those who judge enjoy their sins vicariously? As a man thinks in his heart, so he is. Keep it with all diligence for the issues of life flow from it.
