Be Careful of Our Thoughts
September 15, 2021

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Be Careful of Our Thoughts”

Our attitude has a lot to do with how we view and live life. To change into the image of Jesus Christ, we need to have a transformation, and this transformation begins with our attitude and what we choose to put into our minds.

Two construction workers sat down to lunch. One opened his lunch box and angrily said, “I can’t believe it! Baloney again! That’s the fourth time this week, and I hate baloney.”

His friend replied, “Take it easy, just tell your wife to fix something else.”

“Wife,” said the first, “I fix my own lunches.”

The Bible says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)

Jesus said, “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man.” (Matthew 15:19-20)

My first car was a 1963 Buick Rivera, and it was bad to the bone. When I revved the engine, trees and houses shook. I didn’t lose too many races.

Back in those days, however, there were only two types of gasoline, regular and premium. When I put in the cheaper regular, the car wouldn’t run as well and would ping. But when I put in premium, the car would purr.

God created us to be high performers. But we often shortcut God’s way and put into our minds cheap gas, that is, the junk of the world, and then we wonder why we’re pinging instead of purring.

Let’s say I filled a glass to the top with Root Beer and then bump it. Would orange juice or milk spill out? Neither only Root Beer! So, what happens when we get bumped? What spills out? It’s whatever we’ve been filling our minds and hearts with.

So, are we putting in regular gas, the baloney of the world, or premium gasoline, the filet mignon of God’s word? Remember, what goes in is what comes out.
