Philippians 4:8 (KJV) “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.”
“Fifteen college professors who taught human motivation were asked to write a concise statement on that subject. After hours of study, they said: “What the mind attends to, it considers. What the mind does not attend to, it dismisses, What the mind attends to continually, it believes. What the mind believes, it eventually does.”
How much of the Bible do you read? More importantly, how much of it are you applying to your life? Many read the Bible like a book rather than a love story. They get the words, but they don’t get the music.
It is not enough to simply read the Word. You must ask God to teach you. Psalm 119:18 “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”
Write out the underlined words in our passage from Philippians 4:8. Reflect on each one of them and note what God reveals as to how they apply to your life.”
