The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”

– Romans 6:8

You don’t need money to have peace of mind. You don’t need financial freedom and you don’t need a vacation — you can have serenity of mind, right now. Right now. Right in your bones. You can get to the place that no matter where you go, you have this thing inside of you that cannot be shaken. With peace of mind, tranquility, and safety, you can let go of reputation management. I am convinced that in our modern world, reputation management is the number one thing disrupting people’s peace of mind, tranquility, and serenity. Reputation management destroys our peace of mind — it’s not worth it. Amen? Look, first of all, every preacher is preaching to a mirror. This is a message for Bobby Schuller, okay? I can tell you that when I am concerned about managing how people think about me, what they say about me, and what they see in me, I lose something in my soul … and so do you. You lose power, you lose tranquility, you lose intelligence — you lose a lot and it’s not worth it.


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference (The Serenity Prayer).


How can you move towards having serenity of the mind, today?
