“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.” Philippians 4:8

Here is Paul’s finally. Paul gives us a nice list of things that should occupy our thinking.

1.    True – Jesus is the truth. The Word is truth.
2.    Honest – Honesty is always right
3.    Just – Things that are right, looking for justice for all
4.    Pure – uncontaminated, holy, chaste, the Word is pure
5.    Lovely – friendly towards, agreeable, pleasing
6.    Good Report – reputable, well thought of, speaking the Word
7.    Virtue – praise, moral goodness
8.    Praise – has a good testimony, praise worthy, offering glory to God

Here are eight things to consider when thinking on things. These things should occupy your mind.

This gives a good ruler for going to movies, watching TV, reading, surfing the web, listening to music, and all the things we do each day. Do they fit this list?

Negative thinking bogs down many people’s negative thinking. None of these things are negative unless you are an unbeliever.

When your mind is troubled about many things, think on these things.
