Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9 ESV
“Truth is a representation of things as they are; and they were constantly to live under the correct impression of objects. A man who is false to his engagements, or false in his statements and promises, is one who will always disgrace their beliefs.” Albert Barnes
We are driving down the road we turn on our blinker to merge into the lane on the side of us. We start to turn and all of a sudden someone else from behind you swings in to the lane, no blinker, cuts you off and shows you that you are number one. That is so frustrating your knee jerk reaction is to show them they are also number one, but we need to rise above some of those little ingrained automatic reactions. To be pure and to be honorable means that we have to take ourselves out of the normal and become abnormal, rise above it! Yes I know sometimes that is really hard and seems impossible. Pray and thank God that He protected you from something that could have been bad; thank Him that you did not make it worse. Always remember people will look to you for guidance and if we look no different than the world; than what are we saying? We need to make the statement that we are different and that there is a better way.
