Who do you hang close to? You can be edified and inspired instead of down or oppressed.
In Philippians 4:8, we are told to stay focused on things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and praiseworthy. God wants us to think about good things - things from Him. How do you keep your mind on things of the Lord? Do we ignore what is happening in the world? Nope. Why be so passive.
