Think About Such Things

Philippians 4:8 "Finally by brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things."

At times it is easy to think the worst about others, ourselves, or a situation we find ourselves in. We become all "gloom and doom" in our thinking.
Maxine sends us a good reminder in this cartoon:

How very true is this...Maxine offers us all something to 'think' about!

Stopping by via Through Him All Things Are Possible. I am a new contributing writer and so excited to see how God moves in me!

God bless!

That is so good and so true. I try to believe the best but sometimes find myself believing the worst. Thank you for this reminder.

I used to use this verse out of Philippians at funerals and encourage those assembled to think about such things as they remembered the deceased. Thanks for your post.

I love this 'toon! ... Thought it might be directed right at me. Isn't it wonderful when Truths are imparted with humor?

Have a great new week!
