TODAY’S WORD…

.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing.

Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable,

and right, and pure,

and lovely, and admirable.

.

Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

.

Then the God of peace will be with you.

REFLECTION…

.

We must fix our thoughts

on what is true, and honourable,

and right, and pure,

and lovely, and admirable.

.

Let our thoughts be

about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Let us think about these things

and let them be what guides our thoughts

and directs our motives.

.

The Holy Spirit gives us the power to govern our thoughts,

for which we are primarily responsible.

If we determinedly control our thoughts,

then our inward life can be disciplined,

and our outward life will follow and reflect this.

.

Self-discipline begins with our thoughts,

and we cannot do better than to let our mind focus on Jesus.

Only then can the God of peace truly be in our heart.

.

QUOTE…

.

"It is the thought-life that defiles you.

For from within, out of a person’s heart,

come evil thoughts, sexual immorality,

theft, murder, adultery, greed,

wickedness, deceit, eagerness for lustful pleasure,

envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.

All these vile things come from within;

they are what defile you and make you unacceptable to God."

.

– Jesus Christ (Mk 7:20-23)

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, take over my mind.

Come, and fill me with Your peace.
