Nothing is more vital for the child of God than to keep/guard our minds, to bring every thought into captivity unto the obedience of Christ. Our minds are so prone to stray to vain, earthly, carnal things, and Satan is seeking to corrupt and blind our minds. We have to be very purposeful to “choose” to think on good things. We are given 8 attributes of godly thinking: think (meditate) on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think continually on these things.
