OUR THOUGHT LIFE! – Philippians 4:8 Devotional

 

Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”

As a Juvenile Probation Officer I used to ask my probationers what in the world they were thinking when they committed the offense that led to their arrest? The answer was usually that they were not thinking. That was actually not true. More accurately they were thinking they could get by without being caught. BEEEP!

In similar fashion we often make excuses to the Lord as to why in the world we commit the sinful acts that we do. The answer is that we were thinking worldly and fleshly thoughts rather than those of a spiritual nature. Paul encourages the church at Philippi as well as all of us today to redirect our thought life to the things that are of spiritual value and that will last for eternity.

Let me briefly leave you with this question. How does YOUR thought life compare with what we read in Philippians 4:8? It is time we start directing our thought life to the things of the Lord!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
