How To Become Happier

I want to share one of my favorite passages as an inspiration for the week.  Our minds can go in many directions but the Bible does tell us how to think.  If we focus on these things, our happiness will grow.

Philippians 4:8-9 (MSG):  “Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things

  • true
  • noble
  • reputable
  • authentic
  • compelling
  • gracious
  • the best, not the worst
  • the beautiful, not the ugly
  • things to praise, not things to curse  

Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”

Karthik Gurumurthy posted Law of Sowing and Reaping which has great advice for directing your mind in the way you want it.
