We know how important it is to build a house on a good foundation. A good roof can be equally as important. Unfortunately, over time, roofs can leak. That’s what is happening at my house right now. Unfortunately, I wasn’t diligent enough to attack the problem right away and now the evidence is showing in a few different spots on my ceilings.
I’m afraid many times we aren’t diligent about taking care of “leaks in our minds.” Oh, yes, we have a firm foundation in the Lord Jesus Christ, but if we aren’t careful, we can allow a drip here or a drip there of sin and temptation to enter our minds and before we know it a steady leak has developed, marring our relationship with the Lord and tainting our testimony to the world.
There are preventative measures we can take to care for the roof on our home. There are also preventative measures we can take to safeguard our mind before damage is done. Look what this verse says:
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity EVERY THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ.” II Cor. 10:4,5
This is what we need to do to prevent “leaks into our minds.”
Protect your physical house; but be especially careful to protect your spiritual house!
