Monday, August 10

Above all the things that you guard, safeguard your heart.—Prov. 4:23.


Can we avoid all contact with the world’s thinking? No, we cannot literally get out of the world. Some exposure to its ideas is inescapable. (1 Cor. 5:9, 10) The preaching work itself will bring us in contact with erroneous beliefs. However, where contact with ungodly views is unavoidable, we certainly need not entertain them or accept them. Like Jesus, we should be quick to reject thoughts that serve Satan’s purpose. Furthermore, we can protect ourselves from unnecessary exposure to the world’s thinking. For example, we should exercise caution when choosing our close friends. The Bible warns that if we keep close company with people who do not worship Jehovah, their thinking will rub off on us. (Prov. 13:20;1 Cor. 15:12, 32, 33) Also, by rejecting entertainment that promotes the theory of evolution, violence, or immorality, we avoid poisoning our thinking with ideas that are “against the knowledge of God.”—2 Cor. 10:5. w18.11 21 ¶16-17

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

The spirit of the world is around us and it can distract us in subtle ways if we allow it. So, from our heart we should think, talk, work and live in the way Jehovah approves. We do this when we take time to let God’s truth sink deep down into our heart by means of daily Bible reading, personal study and attending congregation meetings. 


We need to remember that how we develop and protect our hearts spiritually will be a deciding factor if we shall live in the righteous new system or if we lose our lives because our hearts failed us spiritually. 


Have a wonderful day!😍
