True Love ~ September 12

True Love

Is the only love

Finally, 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. Philippians 4:8

This is what I believe: if we concentrate on God and all He is, we cannot fail. If, instead of focusing on the bad things of this world, we keep our eyes, hearts, and minds on God, we will overcome any challenges, and in my opinion, not only survive them, but thrive in spite of them.

And, it isn’t by accident the first of the Godly things listed that we should think upon is truth. Truth is one of God’s basic ingredients. Love is the ultimate, but I think we can all agree that without truth, love cannot exist. If we deal with God or those we love, and do so outside the boundaries of what is true, we do nothing; love is not there.

I could write volumes on the things listed in this verse, but I will sum them up by simply saying, think on the good things. Dwell on God and all the pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy things He has provided for us.

Think about such things. How can this possibly be wrong?
