Deuteronomy 11:18 You shall put these words of mine in your heart and soul.
We have no control over the words our society or parents put into our hearts. I am fortunate that the words of my father, spoken softly but with conviction, helped set my moral compass. But we do have control over the words we choose to read and ponder and find a place for in our hearts—maybe even memorize. The flip side of the old computer jargon, “Garbage in, garbage out,” might be “words of God in, words of God out.” If we want our default button in the situations of our lives to be a godly perspective, we need to ponder and cherish “these words of mine.”
