St. Paul says, ‘Think about these things!’ What things? ‘Whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.’
We always have a choice. We can look for the good or we can look for the bad. We can fill our minds with dishonesty, impurity, suspicion, hatred and greed and we can view the world and everyone in it through these distorted lenses.
But we can also look for beauty, goodness and grace, generosity, integrity and joy. If we fill our minds with these things, we will discover a rare peace, ‘the peace of God which passes all understanding’.
