Ideas have consequences and bad ideas have victims. (John Stonestreet, Biblical worldview author)

We’ve all seen the bulb light up in a cartoon character’s head, indicating that he or she has just had an inspiration. Those ideas can often become the basis for creativity and productivity. Where would we be without new ideas? Unfortunately, not all ideas are good ones. When a new thought surfaces, we would do well to evaluate carefully its source, purpose, and value.

Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. (1 Timothy 4:7)
