This Month’s Theme:
Keeping Tabs on Our Entertainment

I will sing of your love and justice;
    to you, Lord, I will sing praise.
I will be careful to lead a blameless life—
    when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs of my house
    with a blameless heart.
I will not look with approval
    on anything that is vile.

I hate what faithless people do;
    I will have no part in it.

Psalm 101:1-3

We don’t realise how often we ask for things that can’t truly reflect God’s love for us. 

There are a lot of things God can give us, but we have to pray and know His heart first. That way we can begin to really enjoy all His gifts to us–from our work and rest, to the food on our tables and the clothes on our back. 

Every breath we take, we can receive with gratitude and joy when we look at them in light of His merciful love.

We’re often so caught up in the virtual world, constantly on the lookout for whatever looks new and fresh, and distracts us from boredom and stress. But are we keeping tabs on what we’ve been consuming?

The Bible tells us that “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light” (Matt 6:22). Are our eyes healthy–not just the physical ones, but the eyes of our heart? The things we look at, are they filling our bodies and souls with light?

In Psalm 101:2-3, David says, “I will not look with approval on anything that is vile” and “I will be careful to lead a blameless life”. Not because it’s easy, or because he had so much discipline and self-control, but because he knew Whose loyal love is his guiding light in life. 

What–or who–do you have your eyes fixed on? (Hebrews 12:2) Don’t let all these lesser things distract you from the only One who can give you true soul rest and life purpose.
