I heard a great statement the other day, and I thought I'd share.
"Man fires the bullets, it's God that decides what they strike."-Gen. Gorostieta
What a great analogy! Our ammo pouch is full! We have the tools to change the tide of the battle. It's simply a matter of using those tools God gives us and trust in His aim. Our most deadly weapon is our example. The primer that fires our example is our world view. Our world view ignites our thought process, and those thoughts fire our example as it explodes from the barrel; ready to claim a bulls eye and defeat the enemy, stinking thinking.
Can you see how important it is to keep your powder dry? Anything you allow to contaminate that which drives your example, risks a misfire when facing the enemy. And as warriors in a battle for the hearts and minds of a moral and just society, we have to be ever vigilant as to our mental input. The enemy is always lurking, offering distractions that on face value seem harmless. But those are the tools our opponent uses in their covert operations. They plant the seed of doubt or victimization, and cultivate that weed to overrun our garden of example.
So drink deeply of good books my friend. Cultivate the wisdom that holds the secret to success. Arm yourself with the fire power of a exemplary example, and lead others to truth. There is no greater victory than to be the arsenal that crushes stinking thinking, and points others toward the life they've always wanted.
