Off-Off-Way Off-Broadway

I decided to treat myself to tickets for the latest production. The play was vile and disgusting in every way, full of obscenities and worse. 

Do these writers and producers truly hang out with people who talk like that all the time? Are there places where people are so uneducated that they only know five or six words, total? And all six vulgar?

Well, I don’t have to listen to that and neither do you. Like Mahatma Gandhi said, “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” 

We can ask for our money back, but by then the words are already in our minds. We cannot ‘unsee’ or ‘unthink’ them. I should have checked that play out more carefully. Now God has the extra job of helping me clean my mind from that dose of filth. 

Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants. (Ephesians 7:17)

Let’s wisely consider what we will do without, realizing the effect they will have on our minds.
