Last week Carol and wandered around in Door County Wisconsin.
As I looked out from our balcony into the Green Bay Area in the early morning and at sunset, I continually marveled at a kaleidoscope of colors, hues, and so much more.
This experience reminded me of a writer from millennia ago who wrote “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” in his Psalm 19:1.
Over the decades sunrises, sunsets, fall forests have and continue to entice, captivate, mesmerize , and…
These experiences over the decades immersed and enveloped me in the simple beauty and bounteousness of creation.
Paul says to us to “think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected” (Philippians 4:8 NCV).
In this verse, the Paul gives us eight tests for deciding if we should allow something in our mind.
Ask yourself, “Is it good? Is it worthy of praise? Is it true? Is it honorable? Is it right? Is it pure? Is it beautiful? Is it respected?”
When we focus on the good, the worthy of praise, the true, the honorable, the right, the pure, the beautiful, and the respected we see clearly, carefully and correctly!
