Philippians 4:8-9

Good Thinking

Beyond Positive Thinking
Paul encourages his readers to contemplate excellent and
praiseworthy things. Though it can often seem like gloom and
doom, there are many good and worthwhile things the world
has to offer that Christians can and should appreciate. But the
Christian faith always takes us to a higher view of things. The
things we delight in the most are the things that please the Lord.
Those glorious things that He reveals to us in His creation, His
Word and through His Spirit. He gives us all that we need for faith
and life. But it is never enough to know the good, even the
greatest most glorious things – such knowledge must impact our
lives. Paul doesn’t leave us just pondering positive things, he
calls us to put into practice the precepts for life that we find in
God’s Word.
