My dad worked with computers his entire career. As a young girl, I remember hearing him say, "G.I.G.O." Finally I asked him what that meant. He told me when a computer program is not working correctly, the first thing they look for is operator error. Another words, if the operator failed to type the sequences correctly, it will fail to perform and "crash." So the phrase means - Garbage In, Garbage out.
Doesn't this also ring true with our own lives? If we spend more time watching the television, or listening to unwholesome songs on our i-pods, why do we seem surprised when our reaction to a crisis is not to turn directly to God?
Feeding our spirit's with wholesome things is not just a nice idea, it's an exhortation to the church:
Philippians 4:8-9 "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
This is not an easy thing to put into practice in our negative world, but it's worth the effort!
