A college girl who was a fine scholar & had a noble spirit volunteered to be a counselor at a girl's camp. Despite her abilities, she was required to peel potatoes in the kitchen.

The head mistress of the camp, realizing that this was quite a menial task for such a talented & highly intellectual girl, exclaimed, "It's too bad that a young woman of your education should have to peel potatoes."

The girl who was a splendid Christian looked up brightly & replied, "But, Miss Baldwin, remember, I don't have to think about potatoes while I'm peeling them."

The application is obvious. You can keep your soul out of the dust no matter what your task. Let the Holy Spirit discipline your mind by dismissing suspicion & replacing it with hope & trust.

Bible says: "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things." (Phi 4:8 NET).
