whatever is right …

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

Ancient wisdom that is still relevant and valuable today.  How much time do you spend thinking on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy?

It is so easy to get trapped into thinking of things that are negative, to think of things that are condemning rather than praiseworthy.

What do you think would happen to you if you focused on doing what is right, true, noble, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy each day?   What would that look like to those around you?  What would they see if you could communicate in such a way that those words became truth?   What would that feel like?   What would it sound like?
