Fill Your Mind

Luke 8:18a "Therefore consider carefully how you listen."

"Be careful what you listen to, because they become your thoughts, watch your thoughts for they become your words. Watch your words, for they become your actions."

After talking to someone for a few minutes I can tell the voices they listen to, typically. That is not always a bad thing, but it can be when they only listen to one-stream of teaching.

I would encourage you listen and read MANY streams of teaching... if you don't, then you will become unbalanced in your beliefs. I shouldn't have to say this, but I will; I of course don't mean read false doctrine stuff, or whacky stuff... hello! But, definately read stuff that is a stretch for you, or at least stuff that you may not fully agree with... this is what causes growth!

It's like working out, if I only push the weight I have always pushed I will not grow... I must put MORE weight than I am used to on the bar and do exercises I am not used to... this encourages growth!

Grow in God!
