VIDEO FRIDAY: “What Are You Sinking About?”

05 Oct

Here, friends, is one of my favorite commercials.  Having been a missionary in Germany, I found this especially humorous.

This is a profound question, isn’t it?  What are you thinking about?  Proverbs 23:7 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Questions:

1.  What do you find yourself thinking about these days?

2.  How do the Scriptures shape our thinking?  Where is your thinking being shaped by the Word of God?
