What you choose to think about, to read, to look at will have an effect on you. What we look at, what we gaze at, what we listen to, what we imagine effects our souls. In our world of social media and information technology, Paul’s words are particularly instructive: “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is pure, think about these things.” If you have no guard, no discipline about which images and how many images you allow to bombard your imagination, this can do violence to your soul, and can take away your joy.
