It’s not just “Whatever”…..
New International Version (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent
praiseworthy—think about such things.
You are not lost.
In this day….label your way…follow the path.
Stay in the Keep Moving.
follow the directions.
The Message (MSG)
8-9Summing it all up, friends,
I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things
true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst;
the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized.
Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into His most excellent harmonies.
