Store up the Sweet

By Max Lucado

Think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected.Philippians 4:8

Change the thoughts, and you change the person. If today’s thoughts are tomorrow’s actions, what happens when we fill our minds with thoughts of God’s love?  Will standing beneath the downpour of His grace change the way we feel about others?

Paul says absolutely!  It’s not enough to keep the bad stuff out.  We’ve got to let the good stuff in.  It’s not enough to keep no list of wrongs.  We have to cultivate a list of blessings. “Think about the things that are good and worthy of praise.  Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected.”

Thinking
conveys the idea of pondering
– studying and focusing, allowing what is viewed to have an impact on us.

Rather than store up the sour, store up the sweet.
