Our actions follow our thoughts like a heat seeking missile follows the exhaust of a jet fighter's engine. So in a day when so much around us trains us to find the negative in life, we must work hard to think and pursue the character, the qualities, and the things of God's goodness.
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
Dear Lord, thank you for being better than anything our world can offer us. Thank you for calling us to a higher standard than the world accepts. Thank you for giving us the promise of a better future than any human can imagine. Thank you for giving us a high calling to live up to you. In Jesus name, Amen.
