2011 Verse 5

Verse 5:
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.
Philippians 4:8


Verse 4:
Finally, be strong in the Lord
and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God,
so that you can take your stand
against the devil’s schemes.

Verse 3:
Do not conform any longer
to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed

what God's will is--
His good, pleasing
and perfect will.

For you, LORD,
have never forsaken
those who seek you.
