After Paul teaches us, “do not be anxious about anything” he follows up on this thought with “(and) Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable,whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” (Phil 4:8) Paul knows that what we allow our minds to focus on-influences our actions. That’s why it’s so important we pay attention to what we are thinking about. Are we focusing on the freedom and truth we have in Christ or are we allowing our minds to be distracted or even distorted by what the world says? Are we intentionally renewing our minds with God’s truth or are we allowing our minds to replay over and over again our past mistakes, untruths, or hurtful words spoken? God made our minds to be powerful, but we must learn how to cultivate thoughts that are helpful and life-giving instead of harmful and hurtful. What we think about (many times) we bring about. Let’s examine our lives and the information we are allowing to influence our minds through television, books, and the internet. May we choose to focus on God’s truth instead of the worlds and when we do so the Bible says, “the God of peace will be with you”
