Psalm 101 Feb. 25 A Psalm by David.  1I will sing of grace and justice. To You, Yahweh, I will sing praises. 2I will be careful to live a blameless life. When will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a blameless heart. 3I will set no vile thing before my eyes; I hate the deeds of faithless men. They will not cling to me. 4A perverse heart will be far from me. I will have nothing to do with evil. 5I will silence whoever secretly slanders his neighbour. I won’t tolerate one who is haughty and conceited. 6My eyes will be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me. He who walks in a perfect way, he will serve me. 7He who practices deceit won’t dwell within my house. He who speaks falsehood won’t be established before my eyes. 8Morning by morning, I will destroy all the wicked of the land; to cut off all the workers of iniquity from Yahweh’s city.   


101:3 I will set no vile thing before my eyes- The context is David speaking of how he strove to be spiritually minded, and he realized that our thoughts are influenced by what we see or watch. These ancient words are so relevant to us who live in the internet generation, where we can privately view many ‘vile things’ with our eyes. If we want to be spiritually minded, then what we allow ourselves to view must be consciously controlled.
