E-Cheer: Just say no!

Information you are dying to know: Ingrown toenails are
hereditary; Almonds are members of the peach family; A cat has
32 muscles in each ear. Now don't you feel better?

A reader recently wrote and asked, "Whatever happened to
morality?" I replied, "I don't know -- I haven't seen much of it
lately, especially on TV." Some folks, even Christians, are so
numb from seeing immorality splashed all over the TV screen
that they are no longer sensitive to moral inclinations. Our sense
of indignation at indecent displays on TV seems to have gotten an
injection of morphine so we won't notice it.

For the Christian there is a partial solution that is seldom used --
it is called an on/off switch. Remember the old adage about
using computers -- "garbage in, garbage out." The same applies
to our brain. If we constantly allow our brain to be bombarded
with filth, well, you can finish the analogy.

Here is the real solution -- Phil. 4:8 (nlt), "...Fix your thoughts on
what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are
pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are
excellent and worthy of praise." Also, we read this in 2 Tim.
2:21, "If you keep yourself pure, you will be a utensil God can
use for His purpose. Your life will be clean, and you will be
ready for the Master to use for every good work." Now that's
morality -- the kind every Christian should embrace.
