Good Morning boys and girls
A computer printout with nothing but gibberish on it.
I Garbage In - Garbage Out
-who knows how to read
-let's see if you can read this
-how come you are not able to read it
GET KIDS TO SAY IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE; IT ISN'T WORDS AND LETTERS
-These sheets came from my computer and printer.
-Was it an accident?
-Did my computer decide to print garbage today?
-Of course not! It printed exactly what I put on the computer screen.
-We have a rule with computers: garbage in - garbage out. If I put garbage, gibberish into my computer that is exactly what it is going to print.
II Spiritual Garbage In - Spiritual Garbage Out
-We have the same rule when it comes to our mind.
-If we put garbage in, garbage is what comes out.
-If we watch TV programs with lots of swearing or have friends who swear, then someday we are going to swear.
-If we listen to the wrong kind of music then we will get wrong ideas in our heads – ideas that do not glorify Jesus
-Garbage In - Garbage Out
-This morning we are going to look at Cain. Cain let garbage into his mind; because that garbage was there he ended up killing his brother.
-Instead, Cain should have filled his mind with thoughts of God and praise and worship. Because if we, by God's grace, fill our minds with good things then good things come out. Things that praise God.gen04v01-08Children.html
