FREE TO THINK ABOUT “WHATEVER…”

In giving instruction about how to feed our minds, the apostle Paul writes, “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.”…


God’s desire is for you to have a mind that habitually thinks noble, true, pure, admirable thoughts.  You have great freedom -- whatever -- to allow the Spirit to rewire your mind.  As that happens, the Holy Spirit’s goal is not to get you really good at suppressing angry behavior.  It is for you to have a mind characterized by an ever-increasing flow of Spirit-guided, truth-based, life-producing thoughts and feelings.


-- John Ortberg in The Me I Want To Be
