“The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.” Proverbs 15:14

Our minds control everything else about us. Our thoughts influence our feelings. Our feelings impact our actions.

What you think matters, because everything starts in the mind. To be a responsible person, you have to control your thoughts. But let me relieve you of a little false guilt: You’re not responsible for every stray thought that passes through your mind. Sometimes we  have no control of our thoughts. Stray thoughts enter our minds for a variety of reasons-conversations you hear by accident, things you see, stuff the devil puts in your mind, etc.

We are responsible for how we deal with those stray thoughts. I’ve heard someone once say, “You can’t keep the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building a nest, in your hair”. God will hold us accountable for what we allow to enter our minds. No matter how much the enemy try to hold us captive to the thoughts in our minds, we must reflect on 2 Corinthians 10:5; “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”.

So, therefore that means we should be rebuking every negative and evil thought the devil try to instill in our minds. Many true followers of Jesus spend their time watching trashy TV and listening to trashy music. We have to be careful on what we listen to and what we watch because our minds can easily reflect on negative things we see or hear. Some even pay good money to go see deviant behavior as entertainment. People watching those shows have told me, “When I go see those kinds of things, it just doesn’t phase me. It doesn’t bother me. It doesn’t affect me”.

But that’s just not true!

I’ve come to realization that you never really forget any scene you see. Even if you don’t consciously recall the scene, that ideas will come right back to your mind-in living color- when something else stimulates the thought.

In other words,”Garbage in, garbage out”. What you put into your mind will inevitably bear fruit in your behavior and beliefs. In fact, when trashy entertainment doesn’t bother you anymore, it’s a warning light that you have already passed the threshold. One of Satan’s greatest tricks for attracting us to sinful lifestyles is comedy. That’s why on television or in movies, deviant behavior always start in a comedic situation.  If Satan can get us laughing at something that is sinful, then we’ve already lost the battle!

Sin isn’t funny. Sin put Jesus on the cross.

What are you filling your brain with?

  1. This is something I learned years ago with movies and TV. We also need to stay away from all appearances of evil. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What an true and very important subject. The human brain seems to built with an automatic trap for the wrong thing! It is so important to guard our minds, eyes, and ears, and it is within our power to do so. Thanks for addressing this subject.

  3. We are definately influenced by what we allow into our minds whether we want to admit it or not. We certainly must amke every effort to take every thought captive.
