Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful (Ps 1:1); Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life (Prov 4:23)~~ Today’s world is full of drama and mess. Trouble is widespread and popular in today’s culture, with bolder and more aggressive exposure than ever before. Its catalysts are everywhere, and the various media promote them at all times in most attractive ways. Today’s world creates situations to make things that are positive into negative, the negative look positive, turn the truth into a lie and make what was a lie the truth. The wiles of evil are so crafty that they are setup to attract us toward things that are really not good for us, making them look right for us…only to find out after we’ve “dabbled” despite our doubts and better convictions, that we are in a world of drama, trouble and mess.
This is why it’s so important to guard your heart and stay on point with what’s good and true! When we keep our hearts and minds involved in trouble, mess and drama, it’s no wonder that our lives are in just that. The state of our hearts and minds comes from thoughts and affections from inputs. If you feed it holy and noble material, you will have a holy and noble heart. If you feed it the television, magazines, books, music, philosophy, images, and friends of this world, you will decline to the world’s ways. You will think like the world and be vulnerable to its sinful advances. We must reject the advances of the drama-filled lifestyle and it’s activities. Trouble, mess and drama do not occur in noble places, while engaged in noble activities. Certain places and lifestyles will seduce and trap you with enormous temptations to sacrifice your virtue to where you cannot escape. You will walk yourself into hell! Stay away from the cares of this world and its activities! Exercise your heart and mind in spiritual and noble directions; do not let it slip to carnal and lascivious ways. Want your life to be free of trouble, mess and drama? Then stop associating with it; stop dealing in it; stop going where it exists and stop allowing it into your life and home. Want to stay out of trouble? Stay out of trouble!!
