In my time of meditation as I love spending time in the Throne Room a certain scripture came to my heart as my mind was being renewed for today’s activities.
(Matthew 15:10-14)-“When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear and understand: Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” Then His disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.
Each morning there is a need for me to continually renew my mind so that I don’t live in yesterday and not rush to tomorrow while forsaking today. The media has a way of capturing everything that causes division, fear, lack, scarcity and the like, rather than love, peace, unity, prosperity, abundance and enough for all. In order to capture the latter of that last sentence it is imperative to renew the mind daily that transformation takes hold, other wise we allow the blind to lead us into a ditch that for the majority is impossible to get out of. We live in a democracy although it may appear to be skewed it is a democracy non the less, not a dictatorship. When we change the way we look at things, when our voices and actions match our democracy only becomes stronger for ALL PEOPLE.
