There’s an old
saying in the secular world that goes like this: What you read about you think about, and what you think about you bring about. There’s a lot of truth to that, you know. I’ve been lately thinking a lot about what we read, what we watch on television, the movies that we choose to look at. What is it filling our mind with? The Bible tells us that what we think about we actually do bring about, and that our relationship with God is very closely tied to what our mind is filled with.
In the book of Philippians, chapter 4 the Apostle Paul says this – listen to this – “Finally, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is beautiful, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things” [Philippians 4:8]. Yes, God wants us to think pure thoughts, beautiful thoughts, clean thoughts because what we think about we tend to talk about, and what we talk about we also tend to bring about. So fill your mind with good reading. Choose very carefully what you fill your mind with because it will determine much of your behavior even without you realizing it. So, meditate on the word of God. It’ll clean your life out.
“Choose very carefully what you fill your mind with because it will determine much of your behavior even without you realizing it.”
