It is part of my favorite instruction from God. The beginning is this:
1. Do not be anxious about anything.
2. Pray about everything all the time in every way.
3. Be thankful that God is and rewards those who seek him
4. Know that God guards our soul and mind in our Master as we do these things.
5. Do Not be absorbed in the negative things of the soul and the world.
6. Apply ourselves in imitating the life of Christ we see in others, as much as they follow Jesus.

We cannot live a life of peace with God if we do not obey God's instruction here through Paul. That is what God tells us, in my opinion.



I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

The way I understand this verse is that we should focus on all the good, beautiful, and wonderful things in this world, not the bad which will only bring us down. Focusing on the beauty of the world will bring us joy, peace, and contentment.

Isn't it interesting how the same verse can seem and mean so many different things to different people?!

I think it means we should think about and consider what is truth, do what is right and pure. Think about doing those things in your actions and thoughts.

Christ wants us to think clearly and wisely and to live wisely.


No body ever promised us a tomorrow.

Hate is a very strong word.

Think before we use it

Hugs DanLin

Have a wonderful day!!!!

This is one of my very favorite Bible verses...

Finally, brothers and sisters, 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
