Think on These Things…

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9) Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

There are so many things that try to fill our minds, we are easily overwhelmed. Our minds get weary with all the turmoil, violence and uncertainty of our world. However, the Apostle Paul would remind us to put our minds on those things that bring us the peace of God. He tells us to think on those things of good report!

How much good news do you hear on a daily basis. Certainly you do not hear much on the news that is positive. Most of it at best is depressing. Even visiting with those around us often does not lift us or encourage us.  The apostle reminds us to think on those things that are honest, just, pure, and lovely.

He says if we will do that the God of peace will be with us. In the midst of a world of war, death and hate, let us look for those things of good report and let us Think on Those Things!

Keep Looking Up!
