STOP AND THINK – Falsehoods don’t become truth by their repetition. (Jesse Deloe, teacher and editor)

Somehow we seem to think that if we hear something often enough, it must be true. That seems to be the reasoning behind many TV commercials. Constant repetition—sometimes at fast-paced and high decibel levels—is impressed on our memories, so we often accept what is being related as truth. We would do well to check the facts to verify authenticity.

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable . . .think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
