I was recently on a University campus in Louisville, Kentucky, and I noticed some T-shirts that were being sold. The message on these T-shirts read, "It doesn't matter what you think, just think!"

Well now, isn't that a reflection of a prevailing philosophy of the time in which we live! In the eyes of some, arriving at truth isn't nearly as important as the pursuit of it. But friends, such a notion is misguided.

While there is some virtue in hungering for knowledge, the greater virtue is in arriving at truth. Paul spoke disparagingly of some who were "ever learning and never coming to a knowledge of the truth." (2 Timothy 3:7)

Friends, the message on the T-shirt was half right. Think! We all need to do this, but according to God's word, it certainly does matter what we think! (John 8:24; Colossians 2:8)

And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)
