Sun is shining and I see the glimpse of a beautiful day at 0730 am.
Today’s reading of scripture is a ramdomed search –
Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect. Romans 12:2 ERV
I love BibleGateway.com because you get a verse each day and you also can look up keywords and also find verses in 20+ Bible translations.
So here is my interpretation of the scripture reading for today. We try to conform to this world which is all about “look at me” “look at me”- and being a Christian is really about selflessness. It is difficult because we do seem to focus on ourselves quite a bit each day. I mean we worry so much what other people think, we try to conform by dressing our children and having them involved in so many worldly activities. So many of us haven’t gotten past the self thing. Most of our issues come with time for family and friends, then where is there time for God.
Well my friends, the more time you spend with God, he will change you from the inside out… he’ll make you a new person who thinks less of the world views and more on a Godly view. Than it says you will understand and know what your purpose is for serving God. We’ll be able to discern the good from the bad and know what is pleasing to God.
Carve out a few minutes each day to read God’s word. You’ll think less of the world and more about Him. He has a real purpose for us. Seek it out!
