In our fast-paced society, the art of meditation is quickly becoming a lost art. True biblical meditation focuses on the things of the Lord, and its purpose is to renew our minds (Romans 12:1-2) so that we think and act more like Christ (Romans 8:28-29; cf. 2 Corinthians 3:18; Gal. 2:20; 1 Peter 2:19-22; 1 John 2:6).
In Psalm 19:14, David wrote, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.”
As the apostle Paul so aptly stated, “Whatever is true, noble, just, pure, lovely, and of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8).
