Watcha Thinking About?

Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

You know lately I have been observing the way people speak to one another & and the subject of their conversations, and I have also noticed the way they write their thoughts and comments on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, etc... for all to see.  After having observed this for quite some time there is one thing that keeps disturbing me and it is the fact that 90% of it is complaining, whining, anger, resentment, bitterness and garbage!  The Bible tells "Not to let any unwholesome talk come out of our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen" (Ephesians 4:29).  A lot of what comes out of our mouth is a result of what is in our heart!  Thoughts contrary to the Word make mischief in your heart. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks Luke 6:45.  There is no such thing as a little wrong thought. Each negative thought you give in to makes way for more unprofitable thoughts. They build on each other one by one. Before you know it your thoughts become the very words you speak.

So today I implore you to get into the Word of God, put your mind on the things above!  Let your words be a blessing in your life and in those around you! Then God will get the glory!
