Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things
This command is quite a challenge. I love it and rejoice in it. It encompasses every area of life; the parts of our lives that it is easy to be applied to as well as those areas that we struggle with the most. It is my hope that our hearts and minds, our very lives, will be filled with these characteristics all done in the name of Christ. If we are obedient to Christ's commands it will overflow into our homes.

May we run the race that is set before us, not being conformed to this world, but being transformed by the will of God that we may present our lives as a living sacrifice; holy and acceptable unto God. (Rom. 12)
