YOU’RE WHAT YOU EAT;
(Mind The Information You Feed On) ;
TO THE BIBLE Proverbs 4:20-23 MSG
“Dear friend, listen well to my words; tune your ears to my voice. Keep my message in plain view at all times. Concentrate! Learn it by heart! Those who discover these words live, really live; body and soul, they’re bursting with health. Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.
Our world today is information-driven. With the advent of social media and mobile technology, we have all kinds of information at our fingertips, and we can get them on-the-go without even breaking our stride. However, not all the information you’re bombarded with is good for your consumption. In fact, a large part of it is unwholesome, and propagated by individuals of low character. Unfortunately, such negative material seems to “trend” rather quickly among young people, even though they can be very injurious to their minds and spirits.
Remember, you’re the product of the information that fills your mind. Whatever you feed your eyes and ears on consistently will shape the thoughts of your mind and fill your heart. You won’t be different from the kind of information you imbibe, even the choices you make on a daily basis reflect the dominant thoughts of your mind. And these thoughts are based on the information you’re exposed to.
So don’t give your attention to junk social media posts, contrary TV shows, or pointless songs, because you’re not a trash heap or junkyard.
Understand that you’re what you eat! You can’t continually read, watch or listen to the wrong stuff and expect your life to be different. So, don’t set your heart on the wrong information; focus instead on God’s Word. Meditate on it daily, and it’ll make a great success out of you. Always remember what the Word says in Proverbs 3:1-2 NIV, “…do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.”
Proverbs 4:23, Luke 6:45
Dear Father, I have refrained from filling my heart with the pervading thoughts of the world’s system. I fix my gaze on you alone; my eyes behold your glorious Word day and night, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
