Long ago, a man named Paul offered some great advice. He said we actually can choose on what things we should think about.
He said: “…Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing.”
And what does he say is a benefit to good thinking, ” Then the God of peace will be with you.” (not bad, huh!)
Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT)
