    ...whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

    I could waste my time thinking about how lousy and rotten and inferior I am (and make myself depressed). But I'd be disobeying the above instruction to think about better things, such as how much God loves me, cares for me, provides for me, and has forgiven me, and that He guides my path toward eternal joy with Him.
