What are we thinking about and what are we doing? Reading Philippians 4:8-9, we see the importance of the things that we are spending our time thinking about. What we think about ultimately becomes what we do. If we are thinking about things that are right, pure, lovely, then the things that we will do will line up with those thoughts we have. If we’re spending our time thinking about things that are mean, stressful, overwhelming, unkind, then those will be the types of actions that we will do. Ultimately, our thoughts dictate our actions.
We must guard our thoughts and guard our minds if we desire to have actions that are pleasing to the Lord. Only through focusing our thoughts on the characteristics of Jesus Christ will we have actions that are in the likeness of Christ as well. What are we thinking about today?
