Words of Wisdom

 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.  When the brethren came from Macedonia they fully supplied my need. – Philippians 4:13, II Corinthians 11:9(b)

Men take on the nature and the habits and the power of thought of those with whom they associate in a spirit of sympathy and harmony. – Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich.

Point to Ponder

 In writing to the believers in Corinth, Paul reminds them that he was not a burden to them at all.  Why?  Because the believers in Macedonia “fully supplied my need.”  The Philippians were those believers in Macedonia Paul wrote the Corinthians about, for that is where the city of Philippi was located.  The key to understanding the phrase “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” is to realize that God strengthened Paul through the aid and assistance of other believers.   God has designed us to be most fruitful when we work in harmony with other likeminded people.  In his seminal book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill recognized this truth and applied it to the work of building a business.  In developing the idea of a “master mind group,” Hill recognized that when you surround yourself with positive thinking, helpful individuals, you will take on the nature and habits of those people.  The same is true if you surround yourself with those who think negatively, constantly complain about everything in life, and offer up endless excuses for why they do not succeed at anything.
