Roadkill or Honeysuckle – The Choice is Yours

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. – Philippians 4:8

I read a fairly obvious quote recently I felt was so simple, yet so profound. Here it is –

“Vultures seek nothing but dead and stinking carcasses. Humming birds seek the lovliest and sweetest blossoms. Each bird finds what it is looking for.”

That’s so true isn’t it? You never see a hummingbird flying off the carcass of an opossum or other road kill and you don’t see a buzzard sniffing flowers. Yet, each is content where he feeds.

Are there are things you know are vile and offensive, yet you spend time thinking about those things anyway? It’s a choice.

Are there things which encourage you, lift your spirit, lighten your burden and bless others? Think on those things. It is a choice.
