Our thoughts build our character

Our thoughts build our character

(J. R. Miller, “The Lesson of Love” 1903)

“When, on my bed, I think of You, I meditate on You during the night watches.” Psalm 63:6

It is a law of life–that our thoughts build our character.

If we meditate on the purity, the holiness, the goodness, the love, the righteousness, of Christ–these qualities will print themselves upon our own hearts.

Paul has given us an infallible direction for the best spiritual culture.
“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
!” Philippians 4:8
