...teaching about life...the substitute for living it !
The first thing is to restate the reality of of what I just said. What we read, see. watch, touch, will be what we think about....it will roll around in our minds...until we do something with it.... That can have very negative results...... as well as positive....depends on what is rolling around in there. Because it is clear from scripture that what we think about in our hearts, is what we will become. What we put into to us is what we will become.
The way to handle this is to feed ourselves the right food. "Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things." I wind up my daily prayer with this one...because the only thing to think about then is Jesus because all of those things the scripture says we should think about are a description of Him!
Now I went and done it. I've yakked enough already today....so you'll have to tune in again tomorrow to get the rest of this musing about what we have done with teaching things about life....instead of living life!
See you tomorrow.
