WHATEVER IS NOBLE
As I studied this word, I found that most translations read, “honorable.” Either word is appropriate: When we focus on things that are worthy of praise and respect, we build up and bring blessing. This will keep us away from things like gossip, criticism and other things that tear down.
I set my mind on honorable things,
Worthy of respect and praise;
So that what I say God’s glory brings,
To magnify His ways.
May I always feast on heavenly food
So that I can give away
God’s many blessings so rich and good,
In all I do and say.
All that I take in or think about
Will determine how I live.
By your grace, oh Lord, may I pour out
The goodness that you give.
