Nugget of Truth

January 12, 2016 : Headphones

January 12, 2016


My daughter chose to work on a craft while listening to music with my headphones. Not long after, the cord connecting my headphones to her electronic device was accidentally cut using scissors. She apologized, and the search began to find a new pair of headphones. I may be old fashioned, but I prefer the ‘old style’ vs. tiny little speakers the size of your pinky is placed on your ear. But it actually isn’t what I place on my ears for purposes of writing this, but what I am actually listening too. You see, the eyes and ears of our body is like a lamp to our soul. We have to watch out for what we let in. Whether it’s violence on T.V., or the words of music we listen to, both are heavy influences not only in our lives as parents, but especially our children. There is a reason we all squint or mince when something we see or hear does not sit right with our spirit. Discernment is a gift, and as Christians, all we need to do is ask. Sensitivity to what we listen to or view is so very important. And boundaries to protect what we allow in is no different. For if our eyes are our lamp to our body, and we care for what we allow in, then we can rest assured that our spiritual health will also be in check😊

Matthew 6:22                                                                                                                                                                                                               “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light”
