Dropping mental baggage

How can we drop burdensome mental weights in order to hear the fresh, healing thoughts that are continually coming to us from God?

The sign at the airport luggage carousel warned in large letters, “Please do not take another’s baggage.” It reminded me to check my luggage tags before leaving the baggage area. 

Recently, I considered that message again, and it took on new meaning for me. I began to think about the mental baggage—such as fears, prejudices, and other unproductive thought patterns—that we sometimes consciously or unconsciously take with us and that inevitably encumbers our progress. This mental baggage can often be a lot heavier than the backpack we carry or the suitcase we roll through the airport.
