~ Whatever Is Pure ~

Whatever things are pure,
that which is holy . . .
think about such things
with your heart, wholly.

For, any other thoughts,
to God are never pleasing
only to our fleshly appetites
are they really appeasing.

Whatever things are unpolluted,
that which is clean
think about such things
all else, to God is obscene.

For, that which is corrupt,
soils and defiles the soul
with things that are hard
for our minds to control.

Whatever things are eternal,
that which is everlasting
think about such things
all else, is God distracting.

For, the lusts of the world,
will only cause us grief
as they’ll pervert and distort
our faith and our belief.

Whatever things are pure,
on such things, think
any other thoughts . . .
to God, will only stink!

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are pure . . .
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.”
