Your own environment

The accent of an individual is not a result of his nature but rather an outcome of his environment (or better still geographic location). If two children were born the same day and one is brought up in India while the other one is brought up in Jamaica, definitely their accent would change and the content of their speech would change, one’s speech could contain more insultive words, (probably the jamaican child) than the other.
This is interesting, because even as a Christian, if you found yourself in the wrong environment, you could talk the wrong talk. Let’s assume a sixteen year old student is given a scholarship in the US, if the student returns when he/she is thirty, there would be a striking difference in the accent of the student and the content of the speech depending on the geographical location of the student in the US.
Well, that means as a Christian, to effect a change in the way you talk most likely would begin with the conditions of your environment, now you don’t have to travel to India or China, afterall those countries are not Christianized yet, but you can create your own environment by changing the things you see and hear, and more exciting is the fact that you can carry that environment everywhere you go. You start by making the change in your own corner of the room, then you move around with your music player thus controlling the kind of words you hear and before long, you would notice that the things that you used to say(that didn’t meet the standard of God’s word) would find no place in you.
Make conscious efforts to create your own godly environment and before you realize it you would become an influential factor of change in your own world.

2Corinthians 6:17
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
(KJV)
