Meditate on These Things
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble,...just,...pure,...lovely,...of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things."(NKJV). Paul is writing to the Philippian church and says to "Meditate on these things." What does he mean by meditate?
Most of the time when people say meditate the first thought into peoples head is a man, legs crossed, sitting, hand out, humming. This supernatural meditation is not what Paul is referring to. The King James version of the bible says to "think on these things." New American Standard says "dwell." Paul is clearly saying that we must think or focus on these things,
These virtuous things are things that are good and beneficial and we should have these virtues and should think like this. So they should be on our mind daily.
