Kill The Poverty Of The Mind

Our minds need constant renewal, the less you learn, the more ignorant you become
Our brains are created in a way that, they can learn so much, in other words, they are elastic, that's why you can read as many books and watch as many videos. Do you know how we often talk about movies of old, those movies have been stored some where in our memories that we can relay some scenes word for word. That's how powerful our minds are. The question then that comes to mind now is, what are we doing with our minds? are they lying idle and wondering or are you the type that is giving it mental exercise by learning constantly so that you can rightly divide the word of truth. I once heard a wise man say that, "The first ground you must till is that of the mind" I have heard before that Ignorance is expensive especially when it comes to things to do with the law, if you don't know then, you will pay dearly.

This is coming about because people have a big appetite for luxuries, they want to own 5 fleets of cars, yet they can only drive one at a time, they want to build many homes to stay in yet they can stay in one instead of building for rentals so that they can make income out of it. The good debt would be the one you get to put in an income generating asset but normally we get debt to consume, buy luxuries etc.
