I work in a hospital. There are alot of things one could be exposed to in a hospital. Primarily disease. Anything from lice to TB could be contracted. One never knows what exposure can lead to.
Exposure is the state of being exposed to contact with something. Exposure doesn’t just have to take place in the medical arena. There’s also brand exposure in advertising. In photography there is exposure to light. And we all try to avoid exposure to the elements in times of extreme cold or hot weather. (Although I’m thinking a little exposure to this chilling scenery would be greatly welcomed right about now.)
What are you exposed to?
How you view the world is usually the byproduct of how you were raised. What you were exposed to.
If you were raised in a God loving family surrounded by love and support, a family that worked together and played together, set goals, shared their gifts and talents with others, you most likely learned to love and trust. You see the good in the world. You strive to make it a better place.Your cup is half full.
If you were raised by a single parent or no parent at all with fighting, drug or alcohol usage, or verbal or physical abuse you most likely see the world as an unsafe place. Full of bad and evil. You probably feel you are alone. A victim. Your cup probably remains half empty.
Let me tell you. Expose yourself to Jesus. He can change any past exposure. He offers new life. A fresh start. Each and every day.
If you will change how you see, you will see how you change.
Let’s all expose ourselves to that which is good. God is good. All the time. Let’s protect ourselves from exposure to those things that harm us. Just like in the hospital. Let’s all try to keep our contact to things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable so we can remain healthy both physically and spiritually all the days of our lives.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Philippians 4:8
