NOBLE

If you haven't noticed by now, I am drawing words from Philippians 4:8-9. I looked at many translation of these verse to get a good idea of what this word was meaning. The New King James says noble, the J.B. Phillips says right, and The King James says honest, just to name a few. The Merriam Webster Dictionary has many definitions for this word, like possessing outstanding qualities and very good or excellent.

The verse say to think on noble things, excellent things, honest things, right things. Noble is a repeat of the word true then. God wants us to be sure our hearts and minds are on things that are worthy of thought, that bring glory to Him through our lives. It is so important that truth and honesty be part of our lives that he said it twice! Lord please help me to keep my thoughts on true and noble things.
