“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me — put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” ~Philippians 4:8-9
I have talked before about worldly advice versus Godly advice.
What are you putting into your thoughts and daydreams? Wordly thoughts or Godly thoughts?
We must look at what we are putting into our minds through television, books, conversations, movies, and magazines. Replace the harmful input with positive material. Read God’s word and pray for His assistance in all our thoughts words and deeds. It is then that we can achieve excellence in all we do and say.
James tells us in 3:2, that we all stumble in our ways. If we do not stumble, we are perfect. Perfection leads to the sin of pride. God calls us to humility.
Listen as Jill and I discuss the difference between excellence and perfection. Perfection is the enemy. Perfection ended with the Garden of Eden and the fall of man. Perfection can actually get in the way of excellence!
