importance of taking every thought captive

Posted by mjac, 13 October 2010 · 759 views

As I'm on my way to take the grandkids to school, I'm listening to Carolyn Leaf, who specializes in the brain and how it works, and she says something that causes a scripture to pop into my mind.
Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
She said that the eye is important...the eye is how you see and look at things, what you believe, how you live your life, because you live what you believe, and the truth of what you believe will come out when the storms of life come...so the above scripture was opened up a bit more for me to understand.
What we think, what we allow ourselves to think on, dictates how our life will be. If our eye, our beliefs, our minds are holding onto the things of the Spirit, and going after those things, the mind of Christ, then whatever is a wrong pattern of thinking, wrong belief, wrong idea, wrong attitude, wrong motive will be seen for what it is...death. She said our brains are wired toward the positive, wired for love. And isn't that what the bible describes God as? ...God is love.

Amen to taking every thought (and "feeling") captive.
Every day, every minute ........ constantly.
I have found it important to filter what I feed my eyes and ears.
no garbage in / no garbage out
