Someone once said that every sinful action can be traced back to at least one sinful thought. This is merely a rephrasing what our Saviour taught (Mark 7:20-23). The equally true counterpart is that when you can have just thoughts, you would have spared yourself many unjust actions.
Today is the twelfth, so a verse from Proverbs chapter twelve is fitting: “The thoughts of the righteous are just” (verse 5).
The nobility of righteous behaviour is only gained by the exercise of righteous thoughts. So govern your thoughts today, keep those that are righteous, make righteous those that are not.
