~Part 5 in a series on Purity
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.
This week I was going through some old papers of mine. Papers filled with questions that I have written down, over time, to ask a suitor, if/when he should come calling. As I read the questions, it struck me that there were some with which we might examine ourselves in contemplation of our motives, actions, lifestyles, allegiances, identities, etc., thereby discovering our purity, or lack thereof, in thought, word and deed. I thought I would just put some here for your consideration.
