Why fill our eyes with worthless things?

Psalm 119:37 “turn my eyes from looking at worthless things… “

A few mornings ago, I was listening to Christian radio and happened to hear a message from Joni and Friends. Joni is a mature woman who was paralyzed in a diving accident as a teenager and has turned this tragedy into an amazing Christian ministry. Although the main focus of her ministry is helping other people suffering from disabilities, Joni’s story is an inspirational example to all Christians.

The four-minute radio message I listened to was taken from Psalm 119, where we are encouraged to use our precious time and senses to focus on those things which are worthwhile and turn from the distracting dross available wherever we turn.

You can hear her beautiful, thought-provoking message by clicking this link:. https://www.joniandfriends.org/a-covenant-with-your-eyes/

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
