Lighthouse Link Up   Sunday 25th October

 

Remember: Focus on what is true so that we become more like Jesus

 

Read: Philippians 4: 8

Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.

 

Listen: Seeds of Worship have a version of Philippians 4: 8 – listen and sing along!

 

Game: Go for a walk during the week and find 4 or 5 things that you find ‘praiseworthy’ or lovely (you could take pictures of them).

 

Think:

This verse helps us think about what we should THINK about!

God wants our hearts and minds to focus on him and those things which help us become more like him.

Do you ever think about things which are not good?

How can we do this (whatever we put into our minds we will think about – so if we are reading, talking about, watching etc. things which would please God, we will be more likely to think about these things).

God can help us, through his Holy Spirit, to ‘transform’ our minds – to help us become more like Jesus.

This is a story to help illustrate the verses – think through your day – how can you fill your mind with good things that help you focus more on God?

Pray: Father God, help us to focus our minds on what is good and from you.
