Click a Blessing Today – What are you doing?

First Posted on August 18, 2010 by 

Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see.
Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see
There’s a Father up above, looking down in tender love,
So be careful little eyes, what you see.
Be careful little ears what you hear
Be careful little mouth what you say…
Be careful little hands, what you touch…
Be careful little feet, where you go…

That was a favorite Sunday School chorus for me when I was about 4 years old many, many years ago. However, the words ring true even today. In this age of information when we are deluged with so much to see, hear and feel and have the globe to travel, we need to carefully assess and choose what we see, hear, say and do. Our mind, our character, our testimony for Christ will be so impacted by our response.

If we see the good in others rather than the ugly, the potential rather than the crack, we will appreciate and respect each other better. However, if we watch pornography furtively and play computer battle games during all the time we  have, can we act like  Christians when our mind becomes the depraved and violent playground of the enemy twenty four hours a day?

The words of love, trust and obedience that bless our day in God, bring blessings to all who surround us too. However, the cuss words we hear and copy without intent, the many times we hear the name of the Lord called in vain and do so naturally repeat –what testimony do we portray to others including the little ears in our homes, with regard to our respect and honor for the Lord God Almighty and our Saviour and Redeemer?

The worship hymns and choruses that play in the background or come deep from the bottom of our hearts are true and sincere and bring freedom to fulfill God’s purpose for which we are made, bringing peace and joy this world could never afford or understand. On the other hand, the raucous music so many passionately and addictively listen to from ipods and such, while crossing the streets and even while busy at work or at home may cause us to not hear the dangers on the road or the cry of our children, yes, even the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit.

Just a glass, just a whiff, just a puff, it is so good to relieve tension during or at the end of the day as the stresses mount and pressures overwhelm. Soon without our realizing we are overtaken and cannot do without. Justification – it was just our  time-out and soon it develops to full addiction or unemployment. Stop! Before it is too late with results of broken minds, bodies and relationships.

Hands that reach out to others in love, to lift, to care as God’s hands extended, bless receivers and givers, and especially our Father in heaven. However, hands that lie idle when we  should be doing with what is in them –still sitting and waiting for the Lord’s will to be shown, miss out on the opportunities God has presented to us and whittle down whatever self image there is left. Hands that abuse others, steal and kill become the devil’s tool and incur the wrath of law and incarceration and separate from rather than draw loved ones to us.

Fellowship with those who love the Lord in close encounters, cell groups, home groups, churches where the love of God and encouraging words flow to and fro freely, bringing us to a higher plane in God. Say “no!” to empty hearts that darken the doors of bars and places wherever we go to pick us up – these just add to our misery and despair – with displeasure and stain forevermore on our conscience.

Be careful little eyes, ears, hands and feet
Be careful little heart what you desire
There’s a Father up above, looking down in tender love. 

Father, please give us discernment and courage to choose what pleases You
Yes, even when no one is looking except You.

    Great post. We cannot hope to share anything with a dying world that we have not filled ourselves up with first. We cannot give what we do not have. We cannot have what we do not take the time to ingest. God’s word is our only hope, weather that be in what we see or speak, or in what we hear.
    Thank you for such a clear explanation.

    If you are running away from God. (and perhaps it is you who spoke to me about it just last Sunday) be reminded that today the Lord speaks to us in love. However, it shall not always be for He says – Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled.” Hebrews 3:15 – and turn away from that wicked thing.

    Psalm 139
    1O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
    2Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
    3Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
    4For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
    5Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
    6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
    7Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
    8If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
    9If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
    10Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
    11If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
    12Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
    13For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
    14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well

    Ask the Lord to help and strengthen you in times of temptation and yield not to temptation for yielding is sin.

    Bless you, most dear brothers and sisters at ptl2010! I love you all; and I love this post, praise be! Yes, we all must pray without ceasing for discernment and courage to follow His Ways and forsake the ways of the world always. Your reminder that God is always looking reminds me of a co-worker in a Top Secret work location during the Vietnam War. This lady fretted that the cameras were present even in the ladies’ restroom! I passed along what my granfather had always taught us: “God already sees everything you do and knows all your thoughts even before they are fully formed. So why should you fret over what the kids at school said when you refused to go on a drinking party (or whatever crowdpleasing venture came up on any given day)? I still chuckle over the fact of God having better vision than those security cameras!
