Meditate on These Things

Philippians 4:8 is one of my very favorite Bible verses:

Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report–if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy … meditate on these things.

I was inspired to create this image to complement a song written by Stephanie Sharp Hickman:

Philippians 4:8 :: Meditate on these things...

In these times of economic insecurity – both domestic and international – and the wars and strife all around the globe, together with the day to day irritants of life (not the least of which being all the in-your-face political drama), it’s all too easy to get hung up on worldly stuff and forget to focus of the things that really matter. I often meditate on this scripture when I find myself developing a negative attitude. It really helps me to return my focus to what is of true importance: the pursuit of God and sharing his love with others.
