Right Thinking, Right Actions

Today is Halloween a day where mankind in the western world pays homage to the things of the devil.  People today think of ghosts, goblins, witches an wizards as funny and o.k.  My exhortation for you today is to apply the principles of Phil 4:8-9, to your life and family.  Paul says whatsoever is true.  Teach the members of your family to be honest and fair.  Never tell a lie.  Whatever is noble and of good report.  Excellent character is shown and lived in our families.  Whatever is right.  We are living in a world of half truth and wrong thinking.  You are to re-inforce the right things and expose the wrong things.  Whatever is pure.  The pure things are found in the life of the Christian and in the word of God.  Whatever is lovely.  The world is full of little beauty.  It is full of ugliness and strife.  You as a Christian are to be an example of right living and shine forth in this world of darkness.  If it is excellent or praise worthy, you are to think on these things.  Paul wants the mind of the Christian to be the mind of Christ.  Paul then says that whatever they have received or learned and even seen in his life to put into practice.  When you put the things of God into practice you will be at peace with God.  Your promises today are:  Rom 12:1-2, James 4:7 1 John 3:8 and 4:4.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Sometimes it is harder to decide who is more dangerous, a crocodile after its prey or an evil man planning the destruction of another.  God will not removed a mountain from your path that you have been called to move.  So get out your shovel and get to work.
