Ed Young Television Devotional

Dirty Laundry

The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost partsProverbs 26:22

Gossip is so big in our society that we have created an entire industry around it. The sole purpose of gossip magazines, newspapers and television shows is to air out people’s dirty laundry. Let’s face it—we love to be ‘in the know.’

Most of the things reported in those publications and television shows are about the negative things in people’s lives. The problem with the negativity we encounter, though, is that it stains other areas of our lives as well. It will show up in everything we do. We develop pessimistic views of life, and it infiltrates our thoughts. We begin to tear down others with our words instead of lifting them up. And we stop believing in the possibility of the impossible.

Too many of us have the stain of negativity on our lives. We need to come clean. But unlike a dirty shirt, stains of negativity can’t easily be removed with Tide in a cold rinse. It takes the cleansing power of the Word of God. We will be faced with negative things in this society, but we don’t have to focus on them. Be optimistic on purpose. Turn away from negativity and allow the power of Jesus Christ to come in and cleanse your life. 


Lord, I admit that it is really easy to go negative. There are so many things in my life that have caused me to go negative, but today I choose to be clean. Cleanse my heart and my mind from all the negative things that I have stored there. And help me to gain a healthy optimism about life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
