Protecting Your Ear from the Things that Will Destroy You

Tuesday is for Preparing the Preacher

I found an old journal today and this entry from 4-11-08:

“Help me to be like Charles Simeon who made it his practice ‘never to hear, or see, or know, what if heard, or seen, or known, would call for some distasteful response from me.’

philippians 4(8)Still a great guide for thoughts whether you are a preacher or not. Train your heart and your ears to follow the word of God in Philippians 4:8.

Whatever is true,
whatever is honorable,
whatever is just,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence,
if there is anything worthy of praise,
.        think about these things.

—Philippians 4:8
