My favorite book in the Bible is Philippians, and I specifically love chapter four. So much so, that I am currently writing a book about this being God's Prescription for Depression. Verse 8 is especially dear to my heart...
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.
Write any traditional (rhyming) poetry form using the above verse as inspiration!
