"For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have."

(2 Corinthians 8:12)

Today, we are going to examine the word "mind" and how it relates to the practical and biblical principles for "Spiritual" growth. In essence, "mind" is a representation of the entire spiritual nature of the soul. Mind is further defined as the intellect in man; The power that conceives, judges, or reasons; Choice; Inclination; Will; Memory; Remembrance; Call to mind; To lose one's mind; Courage; Spirit; Purpose; To obey or give attention; Ego; Knowledge; Revive; Will power; Wisdom; Be alert; Thought patterns; Emotions; and Viewpoint. In the business world, it is called "Frames of Mind" a key leadership ability in dealing with multiple levels of intelligence beyond emotions in developing people, building partnerships, and providing a healthy culture growth for sustainability globally. The "mind" is a direct connection between "Frames of Mind" in the ability to reach the core of humans; the spirit (heart), to bring positive change and transformation. The "mind" controllability has both a negative and positive approach known by the platforms, character, and health of the total well-being.

In the context of the scripture, the Apostle Paul left on record, advice for all people and leadership the importance of knowing the "mind" is the soul of man and by the will of man to live, produces positive change. For instance, personally, I call this, "Fight-For-Purpose." It is the ability to know each individual has a purpose designed from birth, even though through change and trails of life, must fight for purpose to transformation. Thought to ponder: "The good health of the mind brings true change, when the spirit of "True Life" from a willing heart, breaks bondage." This requires a fighter mentality as a boxer to endure to the end. Each bout in the ring brings individual victory, each punch in the ring endured is victory. "Go to the body" goes through numerous blows and change in the process to gain the target--the head for the ultimate hook of victory. A great fighter will always cover up (guard) the head to avoid damage to the mind--brain function. At this level, transformation only comes when the soul and mind is not control by the opposition of the opponent blows, but strategically evaluates, repositioning--shifting in the ring, as winning for life.
