Daily Walk 365 – Day 13

Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable — if there is any moral excellence, and if there is any praise — dwell on these things.  — Philippians 4:8 (HCSB)

What if we did dwell on these things?  What do we often dwell on instead?  These things seem pleasant, why do we so often dwell on the unpleasant?

My friend debily had a post last week entitled Threads of Gratitude, which Angie read, but I skimmed.  To my chagrin, I don’t dwell enough on the gratitude I have for my wife, my family, my friends, my church, my country.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for all those things, but I don’t dwell on them.  Too often I dwell on the small number in my check balance, or the low level of gas in my car, or the long to-do list at work and at home.  When I would do better to dwell on all the wonderful things that each day, week, month, year brings.

So I’ll just do that. m’kay. (My wife tried to bully me into listing my top 5 things I was grateful for, but thhhhbbbpppptt on her!)
