“Think on These Things!”
Landon: Welcome to the Adventure Camp Podcast!
This week’s adventure: “Think on these things!”
John: Hello, everybody and welcome back to the
C.I. Adventure Camp Podcast! My name is John.
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Hey there, kids! Officer Billy Bob Joe here!
Silly: I’m Silly!
Milly: And I’m Milly!
Silly and Milly: And we’re twins!
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Oh! Hey, there Silly and Milly! Didn’t know you were joining us today!
John: Okay guys, so let’s get to today’s discussion.
Silly: Yeah, whatEVER!
Milly: Silly, like, what was that about?
Milly: That ‘tude is RUDE, girl.
Silly: Huh? Oh! You didn’t get the reference?
Silly: Ugh, I was quoting ‘Tude Tina.
Silly: YASS! It’s like my favorite show EVER!
Milly *Disappointedly*: Silly’s been on a binge lately.
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Well, I’m definitely out of the loop.
Silly:‘Tude Tina is so cool! She’s a teenage detective and like, she finds dirt on all the bad guys!
Milly: She also has a really bad attitude.
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Bad like, cool right?
Milly: No, like, she’s kinda bratty. Like. Not good.
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Oh.
Silly: But she’s like SOO cool! Like, I watch her all the time!
John: Well, she may be cool, Silly. But you’ve gotta guard what kind of shows you’re watching.
Silly: Guard? Like, what does that mean?
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Like being sure of what you’re taking in. Whether that be a movie, show, video game, book, music, anything! There ARE some great shows out there.
You can’t see this in the audio version but I just winked.
But you need to be aware of what the show has in it!
John: Right! Like, if there’s too much violence, if it’s scary, or maybe just a bad attitude that doesn’t need to be rubbed off on us, we shouldn’t take that kind of stuff in.
Silly: But, why does that even matter?
John: Hmm. Have you ever heard of the expression, “garbage in, garbage out?”
Silly: *Gasp* It’s garbage day! I forgot to take it out this morning!
Officer Billy Bob Joe: N-No no, Silly. It means that if all you let is garbage in, like something bad you’re watching, then all that there is to come from you is, well, garbage.
John: I believe that expression actually comes from a verse in The Bible. Jesus says in Luke 6:45 (NIV), “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
Think of a sponge. If it soaks in water, what will come out of the sponge when you squeeze it?
John: Right! Or if the sponge soaked up a grape soda. What will come out of the sponge when you squeeze it then?
Silly: Uh. Probably grape soda.
John: Definitely grape soda. So people are like sponges! If all you do is take in a bad attitude, violence, witchcraft, or anything not good, all that’ll come out of your mouth is what you take in all the time.
Officer Billy Bob Joe: And that can get you in a lot of trouble. Talking with an attitude like that to your parents could get you grounded. And not everybody is gonna appreciate it. And believe me, talking like that or acting like you’re from one of those bad shows or games in front of a police officer is not a good idea.
Silly: Yikes. I guess I never really thought about how important the things I take in are. I honestly didn’t realize I was being rude.
John: You know, Silly, the Apostle Paul said in
Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Silly: Uuh. What’s a virtue??
Officer Billy Bob Joe: Like morals and values, good things!
John: That’s right! So we should entertain ourselves with things that are good! And we need to pay attention to the things we’re soaking up all the time, like a sponge.
Silly: Okay, well, I guess you’re right. I should probably give ‘Tude Tina a rest, huh?
Milly: Uh, you DID binge watch it for like three days straight, Silly.
Officer Billy Bob Joe: I ain’t watched a marathon like that since the lost episodes of Bananza.
Milly: What is Bananza?
Silly: Uh what’s a marathon?
John: Well, I think that’ll do it for today! See you guys next time!
Silly: Until next time!
Milly: Peace out!
Officer Billy Bob Joe: See you guys later! Tell me you’ve at LEAST seen the Andy Griffith Show.

If you’ve never asked Jesus to be in your heart and you want to, all you have to do is ask! Just say “Lord Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart and be my Lord and Personal Savior. I believe that you came to the earth, died on the cross, and arose again after three days. I ask you to forgive me of my sin and make me new. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
And if you prayed that prayer, you’re now a part of God’s family! Isn’t that awesome!?
