How much time do we spend dwelling on the negative? The growing divide in our world has us taking sides against one another. The more we read and hear of arguments, in the news or on social media, the more depressed and cynical we become. There is a better way. Instead of dwelling on the negativity, we are called to focus on what is good and right. God tells us, “…whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just…think on these things.” Filling our minds and heart with what is righteous and honorable will give us a better outlook and equip us to make a difference in our world.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:4-9
