Now for many, this will be a reminder. Perhaps even a challenge.
What are you feeding your brain?
Here’s what Paul suggests:
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 2:8, NIV)
These are the keys to rewiring and transforming our brain. But here’s the catch: make sure you are using God’s definition of the word. Yesterday we considered the instruction to not be conformed to the world, its pattern and way of thinking. The worldly mindset includes all the things Paul listed, but they are self-focused not God-driven.
Take the time today to ponder the difference in this list as it applies to Godly living and how the world would twist it in on self.
PRAYER: God help us use your dictionary, your definitions, to define us and to shape our relationships with you and others in our lives. Amen.
