Week 33 of Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is nearly finished. This week’s reading was Philippians 1-4, and Colossians 1. These chapters cover Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi, and begin his letter to the church at Colossae.
Philippians 4:8 tells us what kind of things to be thinking about – whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy. One thing that affects our thoughts in a greater way than we may sometimes think is our choice of media. What are we watching and listening to? What are we reading online? Does it match up with the kind of thing Philippians 4:8 says that we should be thinking about?
What goes in our eyes and ears often ends up in our minds and hearts, and what’s in our heart will come out in our life. Therefore, our media choices often impact us more than we may imagine.
An excellent choice of what to be filling our minds with is God’s Word. It truly possesses all of the qualities mentioned in Philippians 4:8, and Psalm 1:2-3 says that those who meditate on and delight in the Word of God will prosper in whatever they do! Let’s be intentional about making wise media choices, make sure to spend time in God’s Word!
