[PC-USA] 2002-02-17 - Passages about Our Thoughts

Many of us are spending time in reflection during this period of Lent. Just as with everything else in our lives, our thoughts belong to God. Today we will look at some passages that relate to our thought life.

Philippians 4:8 (RSV) Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Psalm 77:12 (RSV) I will meditate on all thy work, and muse on thy mighty deeds.

Psalm 119:15 (RSV) I will meditate on thy precepts, and fix my eyes on thy ways.

Isaiah 55:7 (RSV) Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Haggai 1:4-6 (RSV) Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: "Give careful thought to your ways.You have planted much, but have harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it."

Proverbs 14:8 (RSV) The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception.

Proverbs 15:26 (RSV) The LORD detests the thoughts of the wicked, but those of the pure are pleasing to him. A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live.
