“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 7:20-23

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“It is what comes from inside that defiles you.

For from within, out of a person’s heart,

come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder,

adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit,

lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.

All these vile things come from within;

they are what defile you.”

.

– Mark 7:20-23 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

The road to sin begins in our thought life.

.

Evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder,

adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit,

lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness

all of these start off as a thought or emotion.

They become sin when we, for whatever reason,

allow ourselves to consider, fantasise and dwell on such thoughts,

which can often leads to actually acting them out.

.

As professed Christians,

we should reflect deeply on what Jesus is warning us about,

and take a firm decision to repel and renounce such thoughts, desires and emotions.

.

QUOTE…

.

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing.

Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right,

and pure, and lovely, and admirable.

Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”

.

– St. Paul (Phil 4:8)

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Come and remove all the darkness from my heart.
