And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.’ Philippians 4:8 (NLT)
What thoughts do you fix your mind on? It is so easy to believe negative things. We have a negative bias. Negative thoughts give way to more negative thoughts. Paul knows how to put a stop to it. Think about it. He was beaten, shipwrecked, stoned, put in prison. If anyone could have had an excuse to feel negative, it would have been him. Instead, he tells us to think about things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and worthy of praise! What a litmus test. Today, check your own thoughts. See if they pass the test. If not, stop! You can’t help what thoughts come into your mind, but you can do something about them once they are there. May God help us think on things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and worthy of praise!
Dear Father, help me renew my thinking. I need your help so I can focus my thoughts on that which is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and worthy of praise!
