Seeing like Him!

I have the scripture Phil 4:8 in a frame right when you walk out of my bathroom, its not some sweet picture, I literally wrote it, put it in a frame so that everyday i read it. 

Finally, brothers, 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.

Now I'm thinking about this on so many levels.  Being that I'm really struggling with a certain someone God really spoke to me today.  what if in all their faults (and trust me, I could list them) all you thought of was Phil 4:8?  Would it change your attitude?  well, duh!

Because I need to make things easy, i need to get it all, bit by bit, I looked up some of the words in my concordance (see Sara, you did teach me a thing or two... I didn't even know what a concordance was til you <3) and some online dictionary

If I see it in myself and see it in others, I will see what God sees.  Oh to be more like Him.

Whatever is True:
Whatever is Noble:
having or showing or indicative of high or elevated character; "a noble spirit"; "noble deeds"

Whatever is Right:

Whatever is excellent:

Think about those things.
