Word-Filled Wednesday ~#29~ Think About Such Things

PASSAGE: "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, what ever is right, what ever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable ~ if anything is excellent or praiseworthy ~ think about such things." ~Phil. 4:8-9

LESSON LEARNED: Just in case you live under a rock and haven't noticed, we live in a fallen world. If you have eyes, ears and can read you are bombarded by sin and temptation. It especially hurts me for the little ones; the little ones who are not only innocent but are learning to read.

Remember when you were learning to read? A whole new world was opening up to you and every sign you saw you were trying to sound it out. These days, those signs and bumper-stickers taint the innocent as soon as they see them ~ they see the bumper-stickers, read it . . . whoops . . . the world just spat in their face. And what about adults? We may think that we are wise and experienced and can handle the filth around us, but it all gets filed away somewhere inside.

Unlike the world, we have the Holy Spirit Who will guard our hearts and minds. But . . . we have to LET Him. The Holy Spirit is a Gentleman and He will not got where He is not invited.

In those times, invite Him in to help you to remember . . .

~Whatever is true . . . think about such things
~Whatever is noble . . . think about such things
~Whatever is right . . . think about such things
~Whatever is pure . . . think about such things
~Whatever is lovely . . . think about such things
~Whatever is admirable . . . think about such things
~The excellent and praiseworthy . . . think about such things

When the sin of the world tries to drag you into the mire . . . Think about such things.

  1. Great word Kim!
    I remember when my oldest was learning to read. how I hated those big billboards on the highway. Why is it legal to advertise "Adult" stores and dancers for little eyes to see?!

    Whatever is true, whatever is noble....yes Lord!
