But what a task each day to sift
from every thought just those that lift
and raise us to God’s glory.
But take from Paul each day one phrase,
and seek just one of many ways
which someone dear its truth displays,
and note it, to God’s glory.
Then, when the day at last is through,
share what this person means to you,
how in this one this phrase is true,
for God’s delight and glory.
The mind is precious, but untrained
unless its ways are all constrained
to serve the Lord. Thus shall be gained
for us, eternal glory! —T.M. Moore, inspired by Philippians 4:8
