In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the title character says, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” You may not agree with that sentiment, but it does highlight a biblical principle—namely, not all thoughts are pleasing to God. That’s why we’re admonished to take every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5). Otherwise, the bad thoughts will make their way into your heart and come out of your mouth (Matthew 12:33-34). You are what you think (Proverbs 23:7). Would others view you differently if they knew what you were thinking?
