"For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8:6   

Tossed Salad

One day as a mother was scraping and peeling vegetables
for a salad, her daughter came to ask her permission to
go to an amusement center that had a bad reputation. On
the defensive, the daughter admitted it was a
questionable place, but "all the other girls were going."

As the teenage daughter pleaded to go, she suddenly saw
her mother pick up a handful of discarded vegetable
peelings and toss them into the salad. Startled, she cried,
"Mother, you are putting garbage into the salad."
"Yes," her mother replied, "I know, but I thought that if
you did not mind garbage in your mind and heart, you
certainly would not mind a little garbage in your stomach."

Thoughtfully, the girl removed the offending material
from the salad, and with a brief, "Thank you" to her
mother she went to tell her friends that she would not be
going with them.

If you have spiritual indigestion and a poor testimony,
maybe it is because you have tossed too much garbage
in the salad.
