We get the opportunity to choose where our minds settle. We can choose our thought patterns in many ways. It is work. Too often it is so much easier to “drift” and allow the junk to float right in.
Let us choose to reflect on the goodness of God today.
I will dwell on your mighty acts, my Lord.
Lord, I will help others remember nothing but your righteous deeds. (Ps. 71:16)
We are a culture given to extremes. Rather than living in the balances of feasting and fasting, we go to the extremes of obesity and anorexia. That is not just concerning food.
And we highlight the extremes in our culture, wildly cheering one side or wildly despairing over the other extreme. We don’t like the center.
We need a discernment process to know what is necessary and good in our lives, keeping centered.
We need a Kingdom center, not a culture fringe.
