Think on These Things

As the New Year begins and resolutions are made to read through the Bible in a year, pray more, eat less, get more exercise, the Apostle Paul closes his letter to the Church at Philippi by giving them those things that would benefit them the most in the future. After encouraging them to “stand fast in the Lord” (4:1), “Rejoice in the Lord alway” (4:4), and “let your requests be made known unto God” (4:6), he gives them final words to guard their minds from the filthiness of this world, a worthy endeavor for all in this new year.

“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.”

Philippians 4:8
