Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.”

You are your thoughts, so a positive mindset is something to strive for.  Whatever you come across, choose to think on the things that speak the best of you, of God and of others. God has requirements for our thought life because our thoughts guide our actions. Good thoughts lead to peace and righteousness and bad thoughts lead to sin and anxiety. The best example for a positive mindset is Jesus. He is everything that is pure and good. With a mindset like His our thoughts will provoke encouragement, support and love. A healthy mindset is not only crucial for ourselves but is also crucial for our relationships with the Lord and others.
