Whatever is true, whatever is honorable

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

Whatever is true, pure, lovely, dwell on these things…Did some light background check on this and the verse just got more amazing.
Because as Paul penned this, he wasn’t under an umbrella sipping juice by the shore of some beach.

He was in jail. And not just in jail.
He was chained to a Roman guard.
Where the prospect was either execution or release.

If execution, then he would be with Jesus.
And if release, he would have more time to love Him and to make Him loved.

Beat that.
