To consider something deeply and thoroughly is the definition of the word Ponder. There are a great amount of things that we do ponder on and maybe, just maybe, some of these things are things that we should not ponder on. We what ponder on too much is what we become. Proverbs 23:7 says, “as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”
One thing that we should always ponder on is the Word of God. David said (Psalms 1:2) that the blessed man’s delight is the law of the Lord (the Bible) and he meditates on it day and night. God told Joshua to mediate on His law day and night (Joshua 1:8).
Paul put it this way in his letter to the Philippians (4:8), “Finally, brethren, 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.”
We need to consider our ponderings. If they aren’t on God’s words and the good things, we need to change what we ponder on.
