Think On These Things

There is no doubt that the Lord would have us uninterruptedly occupied in this holy meditation; that, while we contemplate in all creatures, as in mirrors, those immense riches of his wisdom, justice, goodness, and power, we should not merely run over them cursorily, and, so to speak, with a fleeting glance, but we should ponder them at length, turn them over in our minds seriously and faithfully, and recollect them repeatedly. — John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Vol. 1, p. 180

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Philippians 4:8)

I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. (Psalm 77:12)

May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord. (Psalm 104:34)

On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. (Psalm 145:5)

Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day. Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me. (Psalm 119:97–98)

Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. (Psalm 111:2)

Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. (Job 22:22)
