Perhaps it may turn out a sang,
Perhaps turn out a sermon.

What Matters Some More

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 -- Philippians 4:8

I have no time for a post today, but I did run across a nice riff on Philippians 4:8, by Townhall writer Matt Barber, "The Top 8 Things to Think About", and he concludes with this:

Do you see what Paul did here – what the Holy Spirit did through Paul? He gave us eight things to “think about.” Does anything in particularly strike you about these eight things?
They are eight in One.
Each of these eight things represents a specific character trait of Christ Himself.
Jesus is true. Jesus is noble. Jesus is right. Jesus is pure. Jesus is lovely. Jesus is admirable. Jesus is excellent and, finally, perhaps most importantly, Jesus is infinitely and eternally praiseworthy.

Clever! I never thought of that verse in that way before but it makes perfect sense.
