“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble, whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely,
whatever thing are of good report, it there is any virtue
and if there is anything praiseworthy –
mediate on these things.” (NKJV)
I was thinking about this verse the other day. The concept goes contrary to what our society teaches. It seems like everywhere we go we are bombarded with immorality and lies. TV and Movies try to subtly suggest that lying isn’t really so bad, if the circumstances are right. Magazines and Newspapers suggest that we forget modesty and wear the latest fashions, no matter how immodest they may be. The media always wants to share the latest gossip about Hollywood celebrities, and there are even people who will tell you that adultery is acceptable.
