“If you seek an authentic relationship with Christ, be careful with whom you give your eyes and ears.”~TB
Deeds not words
Be wary of influential people who turn your eyes away from the Lord. While we can never truly know a person’s intent, if they prove to be a stumbling block for you, avert your gaze. Anyone can say they love the Lord, but if their actions do not match their deeds, should they really hold your attention? Be diligent in how you spend your time because what may seem like harmless fun is a pathway to foolishness and sin.
It is not your job to police the wicked. At the same time, it is your responsibility not to be influenced by them either. You can avoid many pitfalls and traps when you focus your attention on the Word of God. When that is your primary influence, all of a sudden, the beautiful trappings of the world, appear to be detestable and vile. Friends, do the work and uncover the truth for yourselves. Don’t be influenced by frauds who try and sell you on a broken lifestyle. God’s influence is the only real influence, pay attention.
Are you influenced by righteousness or wickedness?

“God gives us senses to use and detect good and evil things in our lives so that we can make the proper adjustments to correct our own problems, when our sensors sense what He is trying to teach us.”~Jon Barnes
Sin has no friends and its popularity is but an illusion of fake happiness, joy, fun, and splendor in the grass.In the beginning, middle, and end of it, you lose!There is no hope for people who sin and turn their backs on God because when you die in your sins without God’s blessing of repentance, you lived your best life walking and talking with the devil and not God.You are without excuse!
Since many of us do not use our common sensors properly, one can easily identify people with little common sense.After years and decades of people traveling down this evil path, your body tends to replace good behaviors with destructive behaviors.This negative effect takes a toll on your mental, physical, and spiritual health because you taught yourself how to override God’s laws, rules, and commandments of love, justice, honor, and ethics. Stop the foolishness.
When you give evil the opportunity to master your mind, body, life, soul, and spirit, your fruit looks, smells, tastes, and feels corrupt, compromised, and condemned. Your hopelessness is a result of the many wasted days and nights of self-abuse, not listening to God, following the devil, and making your life a history of wrong choices.However, if you humble yourself and pray that God delivers you from your own sensors and bad choices, perhaps God will give you one last chance.
Did God give you a mindset to change from your evil wicked ways and are you still disobedient?

For the choir director: A meditation; a psalm[a] of David.
1 Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!
2 God looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. 3 But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt.[b] No one does good, not a single one!
4 Will those who do evil never learn? They eat up my people like bread and wouldn’t think of praying to God. 5 Terror will grip them, terror like they have never known before. God will scatter the bones of your enemies. You will put them to shame, for God has rejected them.
6 Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel? When God restores his people, Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.
