“whatever is true, worthy of reverence, honorable and seemly, just, pure, lovely and lovable, kind, winsome, gracious, of any virtue and excellance, anything worthy of praise, think on, weigh and take account of these things, fix your minds on them.” Philippians 4:8
Yesterday we looked at this verse which tells us to think on these things. Let’s disect it today and see what it is we are NOT to think on.
Whatever is false, worthy of contempt, dishonorable and unseemly, unjust, unlovely, unkind, not winsome, ungracious, of no virtue, and no excellance, not worthy of praise.
Let’s disect further, what is false? gossip. What is worthy of contempt? lawbreakers. What is dishonorable? disrespect. What is unseemly? our culture today. What is unjust? judging. What is unlovely? selfishness. What is unkind? pride. What is not winsome? negativity. What is ungraciousness? being high minded. What is of no virtue? envy. What has no excellance? lying. What is not worthy of praise? earthly treasure.
Take account of what you think on and clean up your list.
