According to Webster’s dictionary, “Critical Thinking” is the mental process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to reach an answer or conclusion.
Over a hundred billion neurons in the human brain. 20% of all oxygen is used to run your brain. “Mind Boggling” how many thoughts truly run through our minds in a given day… nearly 50,000 individual thoughts.

The mystery of godliness has been revealed to humanity. It is critical that we come to the point of settling our mind on living for Him. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: (Proverbs 23:7a)”
It’s time for some thinking that is critical. Time for a made up mind.
