Cleaning the Filter

I’ve said I need a filter over my mouth.   Truthfully, though, it wouldn’t help much.   Why?

People speak the things that are in their hearts.  (Luke 6:45 NCV)

As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.  (Proverbs 23:7 KJV)

We must be careful what we allow into our hearts and minds.  (Yep, Captain Obvious strikes again.) 

However, not everything in our hearts and minds originates with us.   The Enemy loves to fill our minds with his lies and convince our hearts they are true.  Don’t believe everything you think or feel.

Two filters I (imperfectly) use are Philippians 4:8, (whatever is true… noble… right… pure… lovely… admirable… excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.) and Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) (Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life).

It is easier to filter what goes in than what comes out.
