Phils. 4, 8

I.

Man an animal that things.  Thought rules the world, for good or bad.

II.

Thoughts on a low, evil plain corrupt life and infect others for evil–they make it easy to yield to sin.

God save us from dwelling on evil in our thinking.

III.

The need of the age is for imperial thinking–on things that are pure, good, and ennobling.  They lift one up above the evil things.  Hence the text.  Direct and hold the mind to these good things.

(1)  They strengthen one against temptation until one spurns the temptation of evil.

(2)  They help fit us for noble living.

Fill the mind with every good, true, and beautiful thought possible.  And be happy and blest.

GEORGE WASHINGTON BARRETT
