Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

what are you thinking?

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:8

Some people seem to be gifted with the ability to criticize. They see what is wrong everywhere they look. That is not the way to be at peace. True, it is necessary to see what is wrong if we are to fix it, but to just focus on the ugly or the broken is no way to live. We should look for the good around us. This good is present in many, many things. There is some good in all people. Instead of focusing on what is wrong, focus on the good. (Curtis Girod)

What are you meditating on? Dwelling on? Fixated on?
Are you quick to criticize or do you look for the good?

Do your thoughts lead to good actions?

What does God require of us?

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 (NIV)

One more scripture to think on:

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

Selah,

til next time
