Some of this stuff isn’t even bad in itself, but it never draws us any higher than ourselves. Is it any wonder that our minds are in the gutter rather than in the heavens? Should we be surprised when we have no thoughts of our Creator, no longing for the true, the good, and the beautiful?
This year, let’s fill our minds with good things: Tchaikovsky, great books, scenic vistas, Scripture, and so on. Let’s also do good things, not just for ourselves, but for others. We were created for so much more, but too often we settle for so much less.
Why not change that this year?
