Brainstorming in ad agency and TV shows is a common thing. What we see on TV, the sketches, commercials, print ads, billboards are a product of creative people. People who constantly think and come up with the best and the worse.
Every meeting is an adventure. Anyone working for TV and advertising know this. We think of things we thought we would never think of. It is scary and surprising because the brain when pushed to the limit and under pressure can produce wonders.
“You think it, you do it”, is how we roll, one of the many. If we come up with something fabulous, we hit the drawing board, pitch it, shoot it and we wait for its break. Whatever we see on TV comes from a simple thought.
What do you think about when you are alone?
Do you always act on it?
Our brain is likened to that of a computer-“a biological computer, very different in mechanism from an electronic computer, but similar in the sense that it acquires information from the surrounding world, stores it, and processes it in a variety of ways, analogous to the central processing unit (CPU) in a computer.”-wikipedia
Complex and powerful, and just as bright ideas come from it, sin also starts from it. With influx of information and access via technology,our brain could be the perfect hiding spot for anything lustful, hateful or deceitful. Thinking it is not sin per se, but acting on it can lead to destruction and regrettable circumstance later on.
That is why, we are to take captive every thought to Christ. That is how we train our brain. Not everything we think of is necessarily useful and beneficial. We need the Lord’s guidance to help us resist temptations and be victorious in our head for the brain is a battlefield!
Think of our brain as a gas tank. Whatever we fill it in will affect the performance of our car. Fill it with the wrong type of gas, and it’s guaranteed to wreck our vehicle with costly consequences. Same thing with us. We feed our brain with pornography and our body will soon crave for it and indulge in it. Doesn’t happen instantly but if we won’t nip it in the bud, we are gonna be in for a wild regrettable ride.
Are you in a situation now where your mind takes you to unpleasant places? Are you struggling about something negative playing in your head over and over again? Take them captive to Jesus!
Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.-Philippians 4:8
