Don’t Taint the Water

Proverbs 25:11
With so many highways for information and misinformation to enter our homes, it’s important that we pay close attention to what is going on around us.
We have become a society that no longer appreciates silence. Consequently we tend to leave televisions, radios and stereo systems running for no apparent reason. I have observed that in some instances, when the “noise” is turned off, it’s the quiet that seems disturbing and deafening. I’ve heard such comments as, “I turn it on out of habit;” “It’s the first thing I do when I get home;” “I like the noise;” or the one I’ll never understand, “ I can’t even sleep without the TV on!” This is a sad state of affairs when we constantly seek the clamor rather than the calm.
We must realize too, that every form of entertainment carries with it a spirit that affects our hearts and if we’re not conscientious will cause us to become desensitized to what we are hearing and viewing. As these mediums drown on and on unattended, so too are our spirits. We open ourselves up to be blindsided and sucked in by the enemy. Take note of what you allow into your home and remember that it doesn’t take much to taint the water.
Proverbs 4:23 tells us, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” A wellspring is defined as a continual source and speaks of water that is fresh, never stagnant. Let the river of life flow through you and don’t taint the water.
Praise God from who all blessings flow, -Kat
