if anything is excellent

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



So, if it is not true (if it is a lie or even just supposition or shades of gray), 
don't think about it - or repeat it.

If it is not noble (if it does not have qualities of high moral character), 
don't think about it - or say it.

If it is not right (fitting, proper, or appropriate), 
don't think about it - or share it.

If it is not pure (sinless), 
don't think about it - or dwell on it.

If it is not lovely (if it is ugly or mean), 
don't think about it - or allow it to be discussed in your presence.

If it is not admirable (worthy of respect), 
don't think about it - or live it.

From my thoughtful spot today ♥
