"Finally brethren, whatever things are true..." The only thing
absolutely true, is the word of God You can have the
"world's" truth, it's for the dogs!
" .. .whatever things are noble..."
Noble ? Does the world even know what this means anymore?
Nobility has long since walked out the door...
".. .whatever things are just..."
Just...fair, unbiased, honest, moral, uncorrupt?
In this world? That is asking for a lot!
".. .whatever things are pure..." Pure like fresh
fallen snow, untouched Perfect, faultless,
absolute, complete Like the blood of Jesus, who
died for me
"...whatever things are lovely..." Beautiful, like God's
creation Alluring, like a siren's sweet song Irresistible,
like a husband and wife's passion Exquisite, like the
forgiveness of all wrongs
".. .whatever things are of good report..."
Whatever we say, whatever we do
Keep in mind, God is watching too
But let our deeds be seen of men
So that God in heaven gets the glory in the end
".. .if there is any virtue and if there is anything
praiseworthy-meditate on these things"
Virtue, a woman's innocence saved
Praiseworthy, is God's holy name
Love, peace, joy, mercy, forgiveness, all of this...
Are God's commandments to those who belong to him.
