Food For Thought

10 For “He who would love life and see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. 11 Let him turn away from evil and do good; Let him seek peace and pursue it.

1 Peter 3:10-11 NKJV

Something I had to do a few years back was disconnect from the world. What do I mean by this? Well, I had to disconnect from social media, from my phone, and even from the news. Why did I do that? Because everywhere I turned, there was always negativity. The negativity of this world was simply getting tiring and souring my soul.

Honestly, learning how to connect and disconnect was one of the best things I learned. It is a lesson that I think many people need to learn today as well. Though Peter isn’t living in our time, we can see where his words are encouraging one to love life. How does one go about loving life? Peter said, refrain the tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Peter said to turn away from evil, seek peace, and do good.

One has to learn how to train their mind on the Lord and focus on Him. Focus on the positive and turn from the negative. God desires to lift you up! The only one that desires for you to stay mired in the negative is Satan. Stop giving Satan and the negative world power and control over you. Remember, you are in control of what you consume! Take steps to love life and see good days, today!
