Living the Way Canadian Mounties Do

In 1998 while  reading the book “Experiencing God” ( by Blackaby)  which I bought in Chicago I came across a topic citing the Canadian Mounties being trained on how to detect counterfeit money in  a rather  peculiar way. They are not being shown a fake one. Only the true and genuine money is being shown to them. They study very well everything about the real thing and only about the real thing!. This caught my attention! It brought me something to ponder  on.

May we not do the same with our outlook in life? Why don’t we focus on the good things instead? They make us feel good, don’t they? Life is beautiful! Of course, we cannot disregard that  bad things do exist but we can avoid our thoughts to dwell on them.

St Paul to the Philippians (4:8) he said,

For the rest, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever modest, whatsoever just, whatsoever holy, whatsoever lovely, whatsoever of good fame, if there be any virtue, if any praise of discipline, think on these things.”
