You are what you eat….. I recently heard an ad for a fast food company who advertised you could get 5 items for only $4!?!? This made me think……….What are you eating?? Do you think there is any real food in their advertised “food”. Do you remember that movie “Super Size Me”? A guy ate McDonalds for an entire month. By the end of the month he had some major health issues.You are what you eat. The same principle can be applied to our spiritual lives. If you put cheap quick junkie food into your natural body, over time you will get sick, obese or worse. Spiritually, if you put cheap, quick, junkie food into your spirit, you will get the same results. What are you allowing your eyes to see, what are you allowing your hears to hear. i.e.. music, movies, books etc. Have you ever considered if you are putting junk food into your spirit? It might be easy to listen to and watch or read what everyone else is around us. It might taste good for a moment. But just what is it, and what is it doing to you? This can actually go further. Maybe it’s Christian and not worldly junk… But what if you’re only listening to those who appeal to you?!? What if you only read what’s going to give you what you want, and not what you need. The caution is don’t be quick to put on your spiritual tongue what taste good but may not have any actual spiritual substance to it. Do not just listen to what makes you feel good. Listen to what challenges you. Don’t just read the scriptures that you understand but Ask God for wisdom with the ones you don’t. Most times whats quick and comes as a combo for only $4 is not what your body needs or your spirit.
Above all else guard your heart for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
Your eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. Matt. 6:22
I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me. psalm 101:3
