The Right Kind of Fuel

This week I filled up my car with the wrong kind of fuel. Not only did I feel like an idiot but it proved to be quite a costly mistake. Hopefully, there is no long term damage to the car. As I was thinking about this, I was reminded of the encouragements of scripture concerning what we put into ourselves. These things will have a good or bad effect, depending on what they are. Jesus declared all foods ‘clean’ (Mark 7:19), however, if we put too much of the wrong sort of food in our body it will have bad consequences for our health and wellbeing. In the same way, what we put into our minds will determine what sort of person we are. In this same passage, Jesus declared, “What comes out of a person is what defiles them.” In other words, that which makes us clean or unclean is that which is in our heart and mind. In Philippians 4:8, Paul says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” In this, he is lining up with Jesus. If we fill our mind with rubbish, then rubbish is what will come out of us (garbage in, garbage out). But if we fill our minds with the right sort of fuel, we will be blessed and will be a blessing to others.

God bless, Richard
