Deu 11v18-19 – G.I.G.O.

In my early days learning about computer programming, we were taught about the GIGO principle – Garbage In, Garbage Out. It meant that if the computer program allowed bad data to be input it would output the wrong results. As humans, we are no different. The things we put into our minds are the very things that come out of our mouths and actions. As Jesus warned – “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of” (Matthew 12:34). As we reflect on our lives, how do we ensure we have the right outputs? God tells us – “Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” (Deuteronomy 11:18-19). God is calling us to a commitment where His Word is always in our hearts and minds so it will be seen on our heads and hands. By reading and meditating on God’s Word we will end up talking about divine things – teaching eternal truths – walking in Godly ways. It’s simple really- GIGO, God In, God Out. Open Bible –,
