Tame your mind as you would tame a wild horse. A wild horse is very dangerous because it hates to be ridden upon . It will throw off any rider that dares to ride on it and may even trample the rider to death. That is what our untamed mind is. It wants to have a mind of its own, wandering to all places it wants to go. There is a saying that, "an idle mind is an evil mind." And that is very true. An untamed mind wants to think of pleasurable things where the I or the ego is always the center of everything. An untamed mind will relish all forbidden and sinful acts of the mind, savoring all orgies of all pleasurable objects of its fantasies. But an untamed mind is very far from the kingdom of God and its sublime influences. The untamed mind is being manipulated by evil spirits enjoying the pleasures of full immersion to sin of the uncontrolled mind. Since his mind is not surrendered to Christ, it is being reined in and manipulated by the lord of the world- Satan and his cabal of evil spirits. The opposite of the untamed mind is the mind surrendered to Jesus Christ where only good and noble thoughts prevail. Since as they say, "birds of the same feathers flock together," a mind surrendered to Christ will attract like minded minds. Unlike an untamed mind that will gravitate to similar minds that are in full participation to sin and wanton living. Better tame your untamed mind if you have one, for sooner or later, you will realize that it is carrying a one way express ticket to hell.
