Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

So Paul makes this connection…  He makes this claim that in order to believe you must first hear.  We hear a lot nowadays.  We are exposed to so much information in an instant.  I personally wake up every morning and watch the news.  My wife hates it because at times it can be so negative, and she’s right.  Maybe it’s not the best way to start my day.

What do you constantly hear in your life?  I am asking for more than just the music you listen to.  Can you examine the things your families say, your friends say, and your coworkers say? What you repeatedly hear you will eventually believe. There’s honestly no escape from this.  We’ve heard it said that you can’t have a positive life with a negative mind, but you can’t have a positive mind without positive influences.  Or, maybe you’re the negative family member, friend or coworker?

The point of today: help create a successful environment for everyone’s beliefs.
