Daily Service: Think on These Things

Updated from Daily Service 1

Recently after church, a sister came up to my wife and apologized for keeping her books so long. She returned 2 bags of books (all Christian fiction) with thanks. I didn’t think much more about it and a few days later I was clearing out the car for shopping I moved the books into the house to be put away this verse occurred to me:

Philippians 4:8-9 NKJV 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. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Do you want to be closer to God? Hold everything you do, see, and say up to this verse and ask if it is good for you or for the person you are reaching out to.

Is “it” (the movie, the song, the book, the relationship, the words you want say) true? Noble? Pure? Lovely? Of good report?

Here are some suggestions:Start your day with prayer and scripture Listen to AIR1 or Pandora instead of Hit Radio 100

#singing Draw me close to you, never let me go

#singing Open the eyes of my heart

If you like to read romances read Francine Rivers instead of Nora Roberts

Play a Bible trivia game on your electronic device instead of Clash of titans

Spend more time in fellowship with people of faith.
