MWM: Influences

I have often been told: “Garbage in, garbage out.” I normally apply this to the TV shows and movies I watch as well as the music I listen to. I quit drinking about four years ago, and I notice that if I listen to country for more than a few days, I get really thirsty for beer again. It influences my thought life. Time and time again, the Bible encourages us to surround ourselves with good people. People that will encourage us and not tear us down. People that will influence us for good, not evil.

Proverbs 29:12: “If a ruler pays attention to liars, all his advisers will be wicked.”

What “voices” are you paying attention to that aren’t healthy? Who or what do you need to stop listening to? Fill your life with wholesome influences.
