The human mind is afforded much attention in today’s world. We strive to keep ourselves in a positive “state of mind.” “Mindfulness” is a booming industry, and we go to great lengths to use our minds to their fullest potential.
However, in order to develop our minds properly, we need to study and embrace the greatest mind of all, the mind of Jesus. As Christians, He is our standard. We must learn to think as He thought, and about how He approached life.
In this inspiring collection of 31 devotionals, one for each morning of the month, John Ross Macduff helps readers learn how to conform their minds to the mind of Jesus.
Originally published in 1860, The Greater Heritage is proud to offer this classic in a new and updated edition which includes footnotes that clarify certain words, and that introduce readers to various historical figures referenced by Macduff. Also included is a foreword by J.R. Waller, Founder of The Greater Heritage.
Through The Mind of Jesus: Devotionals for Tranquil Mornings, you can begin each day with a Christ-like mindset.
