This morning I had a few minutes and wanted to pose a question to those willing to respond. Lately I have attempted to monitor what I find myself thinking on. Man was I SHOCKED to see where my brain went regularly, and how subtly it tracked off course. Can anyone else relate? It is a constant put-off (bad thinking) and put-on (right-thinking) battle, that often times goes unchecked! And we cannot win the battle alone. We need the Holy Spirit to direct our thinking. Too many times, we try and just stop the bad action(put-off) and we never replace it with the Godly (righteous) put-on. So shed the stinking thinking, and enact the put-on below.
In the book of Philippians we find some encouragement….
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8
This Scripture helps me to see those things which I am to focus on. The world we live in is constantly attempting us to focus on all the opposite things relating to that verse… WOW… Food for thought..
What do you spend time thinking about? Is it healthy? Is it profitable? Or even more important, is it Godly?
