What Do You Think About?

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)

It amazes me how easily we let anything enter our mind, even though we wouldn’t easily allow a thief to break into our house. God wants us to guard our mind because He knows that where the mind goes, the body follows. In other words, what you allow to occupy your mind will eventually have an impact on your speech and action. The apostle Paul realized that too. In Philippians 4:8, he tells us about what we should think. Years ago, I made a decision about what I was going to allow to occupy my mind, using today’s passage as my prayer guide. I’ve come a long way since. With God’s help, we can choose to think His thoughts, which will then determine our speech and actions in a positive way.

Choose to think Christ-like thoughts.
