The object of praise, something praiseworthy Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 THINK HOROSCOPES THOUGHTS The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45 "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:27-28 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.-- Winston Churchill The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. Romans 1:18-19 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might remain with you. Galatians 2:5 You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? Galatians 5:7 At the start the noble caste has always been the barbarian caste: its superiority has lain not primarily in physical might but in spiritual power—it has been a matter of more complete human beings (which at every level also means “more complete beasts”). Friedrich Nietzsche From Beyond Good and Evil: What is Noble? Miriam-Webster Dictionary
of high birth or exalted rank : aristocratic
grand or impressive especially in appearance possessing outstanding qualities : illustrious
possessing very high or excellent qualities or properties
possessing, characterized by, or arising from superiority of mind or character or of ideals or morals Like truth, right for Paul is always defined by God and his character. Thus even though this is one of the cardinal virtues of Greek antiquity, in Paul it carries the further sense of "righteousness," so that it is not defined by merely human understanding of what is "right" or "just" but by God and his relationship with his people. InterVarsity Press New Testament Commentary By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. John 5:30 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment."
John 7:24 But Peter and John replied, "Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God's sight to obey you rather than God. Acts 4:19 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Matthew 5:8 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalms 139:23-24 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 Glory and praise are in his presence; strength and rejoicing are in his place. 1 Chronicles 16:27 (Septuagint) But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 Truth is beautiful, without doubt; but so are lies. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson We do not err because truth is difficult to see. It is visible at a glance. We err because this is more comfortable. --Alexander Solzhenitsyn “I was provided with additional input that was radically different from the truth. I assisted in furthering that version.” -- Oliver North But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 Is your reading producing good thoughts?
