Grandma knows best!
I was watching a video of the comedian Jamie Foxx accepting an award. It was his first time out since a medical event seriously impacted his life. Although he has never disclosed the event, it was obvious during his acceptance speech, that he had been deeply, emotionally affected by it.
In his speech, he used this quote, which I thought was right on the mark:
"As your grandmother always says, the devil is busy trying to shape and form your perception."
If you are being shaped, and your perception is being formed, be sure that you are on solid ground as to who is influencing you.
