Doing the right thing starts by thinking the right thing. When we just walk through life allowing any old thought to enter our mind, we will undoubtedly find that our actions are not what we want them to be. However, when we intentionally begin to “take every thought captive” and think good thoughts on purpose, it won’t take long for our behavior to get in line too.
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. Romans 12:2 AMPC
It is impossible to get from wrong behavior to right behavior without first changing our thoughts.
