Subject: March 16th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk, in the vanity of their mind. Ephesians 4.17.

The vanity of the mind is what we commonly call building castles in the air. It is a vain thought. The mind of such a person is fully occupied with a kind of vain thought. There was once a story about a man who was asked to pray at the conclusion of the preacher’s sermon. As he did so he could not help praying about his fifty-two strings of money (at the time, coins in China were tied to strings). This man’s mind was preoccupied with the vain thought of money. How, then, could the life of God be released? Through this example, we can see that a person, thing, or event may each become a kind of vain thought and occupy our mind. Whenever our mind is usurped by any vain thought, God’s life is choked.
