When we talk it pumps out whatever has gathered in the reservoir of our mind. This even applies when we talk to ourselves. The more we fill our mind with negative, unspiritual, sinful, foolish, and frivolous things, the more we chatter that way. Our minds therefore must be given just as much care as our bodies. In the Greek version of Philippians 4:8 the word “think” appears in the text at the end of the sentence. Thinking is linked to the inner man and identifies the location where all of these virtues reside. It should be the reservoir of all good things. Jesus said, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45). All the world has to offer, both good and bad, is attracted to our minds. We must actively filter and question what we let in. We need a mental lint trap to screen out the obviously bad, and even the amusing but useless. Instead the virtues listed give us mental targets to shoot at. Don’t leave your mind unattended.
