Dwell on these things – true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, excellence, worthy of praise

I woke up this morning with this thought in my head – what has been going into my mind lately?

Lord Jesus reminded me of this verse in Philippians 4.

Philippians 4:8-9
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, *dwell on these things.


*dwell on these things


The mind is a powerful thing. It affects your feelings, moods and behaviour. Heard of the phrase “garbage in garbage out”? It works on the mind too.

I want to do good. That’s the behaviour part. It starts with the mind.

I want to feel good. That’s the feeling and mood part. It starts with the mind.


So, what are these things that are true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, of excellence and worthy of praise?


I pray for the Lord Jesus to show me these things and that I ponder on them.
