Cultivate a great desire for inner peace

Good or bad,
The habits
You cultivate
Your life.

If you don’t cultivate
Your inner environment
It will deviate
Into chaos.

To cultivate
Peace of mind,
Your thoughts
To align
With God’s design.

If you won’t cultivate your mind and heart, ugly weeds will overgrow your inner landscape. A garden of humility, when neglected, is quickly overgrown by the weeds of pride. When weeds fill your heart it’s a sign of your apathy and neglect.

Good plants need to be intentionally cultivated in your heart. Bad ones will grow naturally. You can learn to cultivate and maintain an inner positive environment no matter how negative things appear around you.

When you cultivate the treasures within you, the treasures around you lose much of their appeal. Never cultivate hate. Nip it in the bud. If you don’t want something in your life, don’t cultivate it.

The best way to teach is to cultivate someone’s desire to learn. True education isn’t a memory filled with facts. It’s a mind trained with wisdom and a heart filled with wonder.

Any nation
That cultivates hate
Creates a fate
Of much violence.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
