I was reading blogs the other day and ran across a list of 50 thought provoking questions. I’m not going to reprint them here (you can Google the list). But it did get me to thinking about thinking.
What is it that occupies our thoughts the most?
I would guess that most people think about themselves. There is not anything wrong with that, until we become so preoccupied with ourselves that we stop thinking about other people, and their needs.
That reminds me of another question, popular years ago: “What would Jesus do?”
I think the question is still valid today.
As we go about our daily lives and have inner conversations, think about cleaning out your thoughts, like cleaning out a closet. Start reflecting on something different. If a thought does not belong, throw it out. See what happens to your perspective.
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.
