"Finally, brothers and sister, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable --- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy --- think about such things." -- Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

Just some very brief definitions here ---
true: that which is not false
noble: speaks of honesty, generosity, courage
right: morally correct
pure: clean, not harmful
lovely: delightful for beauty, harmony, grace
admirable: deserving highest esteem

Paul gives us instructions here on what our minds should be thinking.  There is so much negative stuff to be thinking about these days.  Hardly any news agency reports on what is actually true, noble, right, pure, lovely or admirable. If they do it is very little.

With all we are inundated with through the media, let's take some time to put out all the false, the unclean, the harmful and the ugly things we hear and see. Then let us think about and claim this verse of scripture in and over our lives.  Let it soak in and clean us up. Let it clean up our thought life.

So, bottom line for this Monday Morning -- Where are our thoughts this week?  What are we thinking about? May we think on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable.  May we think on things that are excellent and praiseworthy.  Amen? Amen.
