Wow. What a verse. These are the things we should make ourselves dwell upon.

If we allow things into our lives that takes our minds off of the topics mentioned in our verse, should we allow those things in our lives at all?

Think about this for a second. Is there anything in your life that takes your mind off of these things? Things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy – these are the things we should be focusing on. These are the things that are going to help strengthen our walk. These are the things we should do all we can to fill our hearts and minds with.
