Daily Thought: The Mind Is Essential

"The goal is God's new creation, and the full human maturity and dignity which will ultimately be celebrated in the resurrection. The pathway to that goal is the complete set of learned habits of life—of heart and body and especially mind. Straight, clear, sharp thinking not only grasps the goal and the pathway but is itself part of that maturity of which Paul speaks. To put it the other way around, if the mind is downgraded, one will be less than fully human, partly because one will not grasp the goal or the path and thus wander off course, but even more so because one part of the fully human makeup will not be in operation, and will not therefore be integrated with everything else." ~ N. T. Wright, After You Believe, pp. 172-73
