Garbage In, Garbage Out
I was gently reminded of this little phrase today. The truth is that people can not continue to go through life wearing masks; changing them based on situations and scenarios. Eventually, whatever we are trying to "mask" will make itself known. We must be intentional about what we allow to enter our minds realizing that one day that whatever we've taken in will surface in our personal actions, words and/or deeds.
Note to self: Set the example; what goes in, WILL come out...think before you act, speak, do, etc.
Finally, brothers, 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. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9
