Word of the Day:Guarding our Thoughts
Philippians 4:8 “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.’”
A pastor was ministering to a couple where the wife mentioned to him that they were new Christians and though they were saved, she had previously led a worldly life of swearing, partying and all those things. Her problem was that the past kept coming back to haunt her and it was interrupting her peace of mind.
The pastor advised her that whenever she found herself in such a situation, she should analyze the thought and recognize its evil source. Then with God’s help, reject it and put it out of her life and finally replace it by saturating her mind with God’s truth.
What we think about therefore is important, for our words and actions reflect our personal thoughts and meditations, for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. When sinful ideas pop into your head, refuse to concentrate on them. Remember, whenin public guard your tongue and in private guard your thoughts.-familymedia.tv
