Keep your Heart Pure

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply

 “More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life” (Proverbs 4:23).

Guard your heart by staying pure. One of the ways to stay pure is to not be influences by the entertainment of this world.  During the next week we are going to discuss worldly entertainment and how it can push us towards or pull us away from our Heavenly Father. Let’s start today with what we read….

Almost all major magazines out there are trash. Let me clarify: in America, many are evil, most are trash.  They are full of gossip, sex, lies, materialism. The women and men who pose half naked on the covers of your magazines are no better than prostitutes. They will wear anything or endorse anything for money. Fashion magazines sold to millions of women each month are an amazingly effective tool of the devil to cause lust of the eyes, physical insecurity, pervert Yahweh’s plan for marriage and sexuality, smash consciousness, and ruin marriages. Trashy tabloids and gossip and humanistic feel good magazines encourage you to love the world more than God and steer you off course. Guard your conscious by not wasting your time with that trash.

Books: What we read is just as important as what we see. Don’t think for a second that a 300 page book which has sold millions of copies is any less an instrument of Satan than a trashy magazine. Reading anything which pulls you away from the living God is not good.

Wasting our precious time reading things which glamorize materialism and the rich and famous (who are 100% all faker Christians or not Christians at all) is not good. Honoring God with what we see and read is good.

Junk in will mean junk out. But good in can mean good out.
