Today’s thought – Think on these Things

apr11 009There is just something special about a rosebud.

Good Morning

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

It is not what one does,
nor is it what one says,
but it is what one thinks that makes the man.
What one thinks determines what he will say and do.
A person may try to make his words and actions
to be much different than he actually thinks
but it will be all in vain.
For it is still the thoughts
that manage to break through the actions and the words
regardless how closely they are guarded.
Others can always see the soul when it is off guard.

Paul knew the human mind and character very well.
He suggests that we are to think on all things
that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely,
and well esteemed, all virtue, all things praiseworthy;
and as these are allowed to dwell in our thoughts,
they cannot help but transform us into their likeness.

Oh, be careful little mind what you think . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
