No Gunk, No Junk, Just You

I was remembering this juice I used to drink called "Just Juice". No, I'm not hungry or thirsty, I was remembering something else about it. The slogan on the carton always said these words "No Gunk, No Junk, Just Juice". That got me to thinking. What are they trying to say with that? It is clear that they are saying their juice is not full of a bunch of impure junk. It is not loaded with fillers, or unhealthy ingredients. They are saying it is pure, it is clean, and most importantly it is what it is, juice. They are saying, if it says orange, you will not get apple, or if it says pineapple, you will not get grape. They are saying that they are genuine and real.

By now you are probably thinking, but what does this have to do with me. Well, let's look at it this way; how many people live each day pretending to be something they are not? How many others are full of "fillers" meaning they are not real, they change according to whatever goes in them. They let music go into their mind and corrupt it with "junk". They let terrible friends into their life that slow them down with "gunk" like gossip, rumors, bad ideas, pressure to do wrong, etc.

Many people are filled with gunk and junk. The things they let into their lives are a bunch of garbage. And as they say in the world "you are what you eat". In the same way, you are what you eat spiritually. You eat filthy music, you will be filthy minded. You eat gossip, you sin with your mouth, you eat pornography you will be a pervert. You eat laziness, you will be a loser! If you fill yourself with junk, then that is what is going to come out of you. It will either come out in your words, actions, or at least in your thoughts.

Not to mention what I said earlier about those who don't even want to do these things, but end up following the crowd. You are really being pathetic. Why do I say that. Because you are going to destroy your life, whilst living a lie. So you will end up hurt in the end, for something you didn't even want. What's the point in that? You need to be true to yourself. And stand up for what is right.

Remember, it's your life. You can make it as clean or as dirty as you want. No one can stop you. But if you want a clean, pure life, you need to get the junk out. And you know what junk is in your life.

Like that juice company, you need to adopt a policy... No Gunk, No Junk, Just YOU.


  1. Very true, if we want to say or want to be 'just us' then we have to not put in the gunk that makes us impure. Most of the time or even all of the time we know what the gunk and fillers are that we are putting into ourselves but choose not to remove it. If we don't make that decision we have no reason to complain for our life being the way it is. It's not something that is so extremely complicated to do. Just a simple action; a decision thats all. Thanks for the message

  2. That's true if we really want to change, we have to remove all the junk inside of us. We have to show God that we really want to change, have a clean and pure life with Him. We must act and show Him, because words are only words, attitude shows God that we really want to change.

  3. This is very true. Some juices say one flavour but in reality its all fake. Sure it may taste nice but its temporary but does long term damage. This could be us if we are not careful.

  4. This is very true. If want to change, we have to stop pulluting ourselves. Also alot of the time we may do things in life that we didnt really want to,hurting over something you didnt really want is really silly. That is something that happens to many of us. It is so important to say true to ourselves and to have a pure life for God, we really need to fill ourselfs with pure things!

  5. Whether people like it or not, junk is junk. If you think, do, watch things which are bad for you they show up in your life one way or another and they end up destroying your life. Its just not worth it; you're better off getting rid off all that is bad for you and living a clean life. Only you will benefit from it; you will be able to live such a peaceful and happy life. Its not easy but its worth it. God is worth it.

  6. Something interesting about life is that we did not choose to come to this world but we choose how to live and where we want to go...
