Becoming a great thinker as a Christian

GREAT MINDS

Proverbs 24:30-34


…Yet a little sleep, a little slumber…So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.


Proverbs 24:32-34

King Solomon analysed the problem of poverty around him. He concluded that much of the problem was caused by lack of hard work. He figured out that if he could deal with sleep and folding of arms there would be more prosperity.


Do you wish to become a great thinker? Here are three keys to help you:


Wait on God.

Read books which expand your imagination and frontiers of knowledge.

Think deeply about whatever you see or hear.

Allow your mind to consider issues when they come up. Do not just take things at the surface level *(Ecclesiastes 2:11, 3:10).*


I have often had to think about the state of affairs of my church. I am constantly analysing what is going on, therefore, I am constantly taking decisions. Once I was having a discus- sion with one of my contractors and I told him, “I am the most important person you need to talk to about this project.” I continued, “I think about this project more than the architects do.”


A good leader analyses his work and its related problems all the time. Perhaps the reason why you are ineffective as a leader is that your heart and your mind are not constantly on your assignment.
