There are many beautiful and ugly things in this world, but it’s up to us what we spend our energy, time, and attention on: the good or the ugly? That’s what this verse in Philippians reminds us to do–focus on the good.
Whatever is noble, whatever is true
Whatever is lovely, whatever is pure
If anything’s admirable, excellent, praiseworthy, or right
If anything, if anything…think about such things
Whatever you have learned, received or heard from me,
Or seen in me, put it into practice.
And God, the God of truth–our God, the God of truth
Will be with you…
