Minds need filters . . .

An unfiltered mind is a murky mixture of good and evil. Be a filter. My mind works better when I use my inner filter to keep spam, profanity, disrespect, anger, hate and other disruptive thoughts out.

Keep wrongful thoughts out of your mind while letting wholesome ones freely flow. A mind without a filter is a chaotic and continually confused. Sometimes what we think is stress overload is our overlooking to filter out our tormenting thoughts.

Filter your media consumption. Reject negative, tormenting, and/or evil words. Embrace positive, healing, and/or wholesome ones. Make your mind a sponge with a filter. Soak up all the good you can while filtering out all the bad you can.

Following your conscience can help keep your mind from being a murky place — a hazy hatchery of twisted inner torment.

Filter out pride. Pride is the prison that incarcerates us in stubborn self-focus until humility grants us a parole.

If your speech is impure, your heart and mind will be too.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
