A Healthy Soul

 

Is your soul healthy?  Are your emotions under control?  Are your thoughts positive, kind and pure?  Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”  Our thoughts control our emotions which in turn affect our decisions and then our actions. Having a good thought life is so important! If we have “stinking thinking”, then our actions will be unpleasant as well. If we think that God isn’t important, then we will neglect our relationship with him.  If we desire money or pleasure more than we desire God, then we will often neglect Him and chase after the things that are here on earth rather than showing God our love. How many of us have a favorite sport or hobby or pastime thing that we like to do? How many hours a week will we spend doing that thing?  Yet, often we cannot find even an hour to go to church or fifteen minutes to devote to him each day. What about our relationships with other people? Is everything about you? Are you selfish and self-centered? Or are you loving, giving, and kind to other people and able to put their needs above your own wants? God calls us to care about our brother.  He warns us against lust, greed, and the love of money. Money isn’t bad. It is all about how you use it.

Are your thoughts, emotions and affections conflicted today?  Remember His promise of keeping us in perfect peace if our mind is stayed on Him.  He will guide us and help us. He has promised not to allow a temptation that we cannot stand against.  I challenge you to think good, kind, pure thoughts today. Think them about you, your neighbor, your family and friends.  Above all, think about God and His goodness and all He has and will do for you!! It will make a good day even greater! You may even feel joy!  Try it today and God bless!!
