upright, holy and disciplined. Titus 1:8d,e
The elder qualities go hand in hand with self control. Again, it starts in the mind and works it way down into your spirit.
What are you thinking? What are you feeding your mind? What goes into your head day in and day out? What are you filling your mind with?
Have you ever begun humming the song you sung in church three weeks ago but don’t know why? We’ve all experienced this. We fed our minds three weeks ago It can certainly happen the opposite as well. You’re listening to a Rock or Country station and an old song just starts being replayed over and over in your mind.
So, what does that have to do with anything? What you feed your mind matters. We know that to be true in Hollywood. An entire generation has grown up desensitized to vampires, witches, demons, magic potients, homosexual relationships, and even into the transgender malaise. And most of that is through cartoons. Think about that for a second. It started with an idea, filtered down to television, went into the minds of kids, and look what we have today.
That’s why we have to fill our minds with good, holy, and righteous songs, hymns, and verses. The world continues to battle for our minds. If they have our minds, they can do much of what they want and you’d be abnormal if you didn’t believe it.
Be careful what you put into your head every day.
