RIGHT THINKING

October 17

The principle is right thinking or the principle of displacement…………v8

2 Corinthians 10:5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true

John 17:17, “Thy Word is truth.” Psalm 19:9, Psalm 119:15

Whatever is noble, means worthy of respect

“Whatever is right.” And the word is righteous. Think on what is absolutely consistent with the holiness of God.

“Whatever is pure,” meaning morally clean, undefiled.

“Whatever is lovely,” that means pleasing, attractive, amiable.

Whatever is of good repute,” which means well thought of, or highly regarded.

“If there’s any excellence and anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things

Since there is excellence and since there are some things worthy of praise, please focus on them.” Please. Your mind is the greatest treasure you have in terms of those gifts of human life.

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,

Proverbs 23: 7 For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he

  • Right thoughts lead to right attitudes which lead to right actions

A mind is a terrible thing to put waste in, I’m talking about trash, garbage.  You wouldn’t go to the garbage dump, and bring it home to put in your refrigerator would you?  Well, that’s what we do every time we let the world’s trash enter our mind.  If you put Garbage in, you get Garbage out. We don’t let them teach us what to believe. Listen to what Philippians 4:8 says:  Finally, brethren, whatever is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. So what will you put in your mind today?

Proverbs 23: 7 For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he

  • Right thoughts lead to right attitudes which lead to right actions

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:8-9)
