Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
Philippians 4:8 NASB
What are our thoughts fixed on? What do we think about? This is a very exclusice list that Paul gives us in this verse, yet what kind of a difference would it make in our lives if we only thought about the things that were in this list?
We are surrounded by so much evil and anger and sin that has taken over our world and people love to sensationalize everything. It can be easy to find ourselves buried under by negativity and anger. Yet we are to purposefully choose to fix our thoughts on these things. What are we fixing our thoughts on today? How can we remind ourselves to go back to these thoughts throughout the day?
