To think soberly is to have a calm, quiet, or composed rational; it means that one's mental demeanor is undisturbed by passion or excitement. "For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith (Romans 12:3).
We All Are One
We cannot walk around anymore thinking we are better than anyone else. The devil is busy on his job seeking who he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). With all of the misunderstanding going on in the world today, one must be lucid and of a sound mind. Every little thing shouldn't get under our skin, get us excited, or invoke less pleasurable memories, or events. If we don't learn, or even try, to think soberly, we lose our discernment to call things as they truly are. We, every ethnicity and nation, need to be able to communicate in order to develop growth between and relations with one another. "The thief/Devil came to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus came that we may have life more abundantly (John 10:10). The adversary/Devil will stop at nothing to steal our joy, hope, Faith, love, breath, dreams, peace of mind, our future. he wants to kill our spirit, our light, and destroy our relationships with one another, moreover he wants to destroy our relationship with Jesus Christ. The adversary/Devil wants our freedom, and salvation, to be forfeited. He wants our souls to be dark and deluded; deceived by false beliefs, and delusional ideas.
"That he(Jesus) might present it (our soul) to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish (Ephesians 5:27). Blameless!
