Oh yes!!! ¬†DJ, I am so glad you pointed out to¬†¬†us¬†that –
<<< ‚Äď they are all attitudes achieved through thinking on those things.>>>> ¬†(emphasis mine) The these things being –
<<<8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable‚ÄĒif anything is excellent or praiseworthy‚ÄĒthink about such things.>>>.

Praise be to His Holy name!
