Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy… (Philippians 4:8)
So here’s the question.
That thought you’re having, that movie currently running in your head–if your child or spouse or friend or brother were having that thought, would you praise them? Would you say, “Hey, Bro, way to go! I’m so glad I climbed into your noggin this morning! Stellar thought life!”
Yes? Then that thought is praiseworthy.
Sorry, Beloved, but it really is that simple.
