There is a lot of ugliness in the world today, and it can be very easy to get entangled in it, whether allowing it to affect us negatively or actually engaging in ugliness. Either way, there is an antidote, and we find it in this verse. Think about the things of God—the things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy. You see, a shift in thinking results in a shift in action. We become what we think. Consider how different this world would be if every believer activity sought to dwell on and act upon these things that are good and of God. Oh, what a world that would be. Will you do your part to bring the change?
