In the 1950’s, Earl Nightingale recorded “The World’s Strangest Secret”.  He uses a story that is very similar to the parable of the mustard seed in Matthew:13 where it is described that the mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds you will ever plant but it will grow into a large tree to produce an abundant harvest.

In this case, Nightingale describes the human mind as the fertile soil.  If you plant good stuff, you will reap good stuff.  Plant poison and it will grow just the same.  Eventually the poison will overcome you.

Your mind doesn’t care what you plant.  In fact, the poison may well grow better and faster.  In the end, you will reap what you sow.

Will you plant healthy thoughts or poison?  It’s up to you.  Just decide.

I highly recommend listening to the famous recording of Earl Nightingale’s The Strangest Secret.  See below.

Make it a great day!


P.S.  What am I thankful for today?  I’m thankful for the parable of the mustard seed that I heard again at Connexus.  I’m thankful for people like Earl Nightingale.  I’m thankful for Christ in my life.

What are you thankful for today?
