These things I must do today:
1. Regulate my thoughts. Rejecting that which is unworthy, I will be focusing on the real longing of my heart for God to show up in my life in a fresh way.
2. Walk in my own house with integrity - In the place of my most intimate relationships and relaxed behaviors among those who know me best and must put up with me most, I must have integrity.
3. Watch what I watch and how I feed my brain when I am alone and unaccountable to anyone but God. Worthless things pay no dividends but destruction and decay.
4. Hate that which is the fruit of unfruitful labor. In other words, I am called to reject the products of rebellion against truth and the God of truth. They appear attractive and they lure us with the promise that they are shortcuts to success, but they are not worthy of our efforts,
" I will ponder the way that is blameless.
Oh when will you come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart
within my house;
I will not set before my eyes
anything that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
it shall not cling to me."
(Psalm 101:2-3 ESV)
