PHILIPPIANS 4:8

Finally, brothers, 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.

Weather things are true. If you think about what is accurate, correct, right, honest, sincere, truthful, you will keep from thinking or saying anything what is inaccurate, wrong, dishonest, insincere or untrue.

Whatever things are noble. If you think about what is admirable, honorable, righteous, graceful, you will keep from thinking or saying things that are unworthy, dishonorable, sinful or disgraceful.

Whatever things are just. If you think about what is fair, reasonable, proper, lawful, right, correct, you will keep from thinking of saying anything that is unfair, improper, unlawful, wrong or unjustified.

Whatever things are pure. If you think about what is holy, spotless, undefiled, clean, sparkling, you will keep from thinking of saying things that are dirty, adulterated, defiled, corrupted, tarnished or unholy.

Whatever things are lovely. If you think about what is divine, beautiful, pleasant, delightful, you will keep from thinking or saying anything that is worldly, ugly, offensive or disagreeable.

Whatever things are of good report. If you think about what is positive, commendable, worthwhile, encouraging, you will keep from thinking of saying things that are negative, undeserving, worthless or discouraging.

Whatever things are virtuous. If you think about what is moral, honest, descent, proper, you will keep from thinking or saying anything that is immoral, negative or improper.

Whatever things are praiseworthy. If you think about what is commendable, valuable, exalted, uplifting you will keep from thinking of saying things that are critical, condemning, disapproving or depressing.

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me (Paul speaking), put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
