What should we be thinking about?
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
These days, in our society, we are being encouraged constantly to feast our eyes and our senses upon images and ideas that are not God-honouring. They are also certainly not 'excellent or praiseworthy'! Modern society is gradually drawing more and more away from the traditional values, the Ten Commandments, the God-honouring ideas.
What can we do in the face of such fierce opposition? How can we stand firm with our thoughts when all of the world is trying to get us to think with a completely different mindset?
We need to follow the teachings of Jesus.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (emphasis added).
Do not allow yourself to be sucked into the worldly way of looking at life. Think on things that are pure, lovely, true, noble, right and admirable. Instead of allowing your mind to gradually drift towards the way of the world, let your mind be renewed.
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
Blessings to you all!
