“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
What controls the meditation of your thoughts and what commands the focus of your desires, will then exercise control over the things you say and do. -Paul Tripp via Twitter
“And you shall know that I am the Lord, when their slain lie among their idols around their altars, on every high hill,on all the mountaintops, under every green tree, and under every leafy oak, wherever they offered pleasing aroma to all their idols.” -Ezekiel 6:13
Our God hates idolatry because He is a jealous God. He will judge against idolatry so that we will know that He is the Lord.
Idolatry is a mistrust of God. The adulterous action of idolatry impairs judgment, shows a lack of love, breaks trust, and demonstrates unfaithfulness. In our day and time, it’s easy for us to also get caught up in idolatry in subtle ways. What dominates your thought life? What do you serve?

What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” -Philippians 4:8-9
What you think determines how you live. Thoughts turn to action. How’s your thought life?
