Do you watch what enters your thought as carefully as you watch what enters your house?
If a stranger walked into your home unannounced, would you ignore him and let him walk around and do whatever he wanted to do without supervision from you?
If a burglar was sneaking in an open window in your back bedroom, and you knew it, would you act like he wasn’t there?
If an aggressive salesman knocked on your door selling goods you did not want, would you let him into your living room and entertain him for hours on end?
I’m guessing that you would answer “No” to all the questions above. Yet, how often do we allow the same egregious assaults on our thinking to happen without resistance?
To keep our mental house healthy and free of intrusion, we must watch our thinking and keep out unwanted thoughts, aggressive suggestions, and purveyors of disease.
Be on guard. Stay alert! Be honest. Keep out the undesirables. Welcome in only what comes from God, and stay healthy and well.
“…As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15, NKJV).
