I’m at borders, thinking about C.S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters. Specifically, chapter 12, where Screwtape lectures Wormwood on how to get his subject into a state of do a whole lot of nothing.

Lately i’ve been thinking about the whole concept of having a “sound mind”, and what it means to think ‘soundly’. The same issue is echoed in the verse that talk about being ‘sober’ minded. Just thinking at all is dangerous to the enemy. It is one of our best weapons in spiritual warfare.

Lewis speaks about that issue in the twelvth letter. Beware a lazy mind, for more than many other vices, a lazy mind is most dangerous, trapping you in your sins. An active mind is required in the process of becoming like Christ, letting His mind be in you. think about it…
