Worthy of Meditation

…whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. (Philippians 4:8, Holy Bible, New King James)

“Whatever” with the shrug of shoulders or an unconcerned look is a common response to a specific question in modern conversations. It implies complacency, a don’t care attitude. Apostle Paul’s use of “whatever” was the direct opposite. It was a positive word meaning whatsoever—a word that indicated specific sources of things worthy of meditation.

Prayer: Lord, shelter me from the don’t-care attitude. Let me meditate on things that are true, noble, pure, lovely, and good news. Amen.
