What I have learned with the things that I ingest is that what I take in often shapes me. Some of them are ill fitting and don’t quite shape me as I imagined they would.
It was not God’s intention that we follow the patterns of the world. Most of it is scripted and does not translate well in real life. What I have noticed is that what we take on is not meant for us to carry. Instead, we find that they are breeding grounds for dysfunction, distraction, and division.
Very often we consume things that are not good for us, and without noticing, our life starts to look like what we are taking in. The concept that comes to mind is junk in, junk out. When we consume mess, we attract mess. When we consume life, we attract life.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6
