Notes from our Preacher
It is the electronic age I am told all the time by younger people, you can either keep up or be left behind. Well I worked with electronics for years and I know a lot more about electronics than most people my age, but then compared to some of my grandkids I don't know anything.
It's amazing that God has allowed man to design such things as computers, micro chips, cell phones, and all these other electronic devices. But we have yet to design an electronic device that can heal itself if broken or scratched. The human body is actually amazing in this respect. If we get a scratch our skin will heal itself, if we get a broken bone it will heal itself. We take these things for granted, yet the human body can use energy from the foods we eat to heal most injuries that happen in our everyday life.
However, there are ways in which our bodies are very much similar to electronic devices. These devices may be able to preform amazing feats at lightning fast speeds, but one thing is always true, that is what comes out of them is what was first programed into them in the first place. There is an (Acronym) that was developed from this idea it's pronounced (gi-go) and it stands for (garbage in, garbage out) it reminds programmers that if a device puts our garbage (by malfunctioning, produces gibberish, or gives wrong answers) It's because of errors programmed into the device!
The same is true for us: what is programmed into our hearts is what comes out in our actions. If garbage has been put in, nobody is powerful enough to keep it completely hidden. The circumstances of life will eventually squeeze it out. Jesus said something similar, "That which cometh out of a man, that defileth the man" We need to ask ourselves, what are we putting into our system? Are we feeding daily on the word of God, are we drinking from the fountain of life, or are we rooting around in the world's garbage dump? Think about it!
