Finally beloved, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
Are your thoughts true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report?
Can your thoughts add virtue to your life?
Can your thoughts bring any praise to God?
You become what you think.
Your thought is your weapon. It can be a weapon of defense or disaster. The choice is yours.
