TAKE CARE OF YOUR THOUGHTS

 

Php 4:8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

Who is true = Jesus; Who is worthy of reverence = Jesus; Who is to be honored = God the Father; What is just = The Holy Spirit;  What is pure = the Kingdom of God; What is lovely and lovable – the bodily Godhead; Who is kind, winsome and gracious or have virtue and is full of excellence = …. all JESUS.

ALL this scripture says:… if there is anything worthy of praise, think on it, and weigh and take account of this; in other words fix your mind on these things. So basically you should be thinking about Jesus and His Kingdom all the time because nothing in life is more pure and beautiful than Jesus.  And to be honest, isn’t it better to think of good things to come, than bad things that are weighing you down all the time?  Isn’t it better to hope on Jesus than to think about a bad past that hurt you?  So keep your thoughts on these positive good things about the Kingdom of God, then your thought pattern will change and you will wake up every morning feeling blessed.  

Think about good things before you go over into actions, then your life will reflect the beautiful character of God.
