    The Bible says to think about things that are noble. Noble thoughts are majestic, awesome thoughts. Today we can think: God has a plan for me, or, God has a great plan for me, if I sit around thinking about problems, triggers, money… I may miss the majestic plan He has for me.
    Paul said to “Set your mind on things above not on earthly things.” Noble thoughts are things like doing God’s will, thinking about helping others, as well as storing up treasures in heaven.
    Second, thinking about things that are noble means thinking about honorable things. noted:
    “Jesus is our standard for honor and character. He displayed the decorum and honor of heaven and proved it is possible to live upon this earth with such a life. And now that same Jesus, through His Spirit, lives in you! It is imperative that our minds stay focused upon Him! The boundary for our minds is not just what is true but what is honorable, respectable, reverent, and dignified.
    How has your mind been recently? Are the thoughts you dwell upon filled with honor? Are they reverent? Are they dignified—a thought process that is worthy of respect?”
    Third, to increase in noble thoughts consider writing prayers that fight bad habits and increase in noble thoughts. Consider praying:
    “Father, help me to turn from triggers and help me to care about souls.”
    “Father, show me how wrong thoughts poison my life. Help me to live with honor and reverence.”
    “Father, help me to love and help people more than I love pleasure.”
    If we think right, we will live right. Try to make it a habit to think right.
