Solomon wrote, “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he” (Pro. 23:7). The way we think has the power to define us and our character.
A New Testament parallel comes from Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi.
Throughout the letter, Paul speaks of standing firm with one mind, being of the same mind, having the mind of Christ, and then he tells us to think on the right things.
And they are…true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, things of good repute, excellence, and anything worthy of praise.
Imagine the attraction to the outside world when the mental focus of Christians is on these areas.
