Devotional: Don't Copy

Romans 12:2- "Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."

Following this particular passage of scripture is so difficult. Each of us finds ourselves living in a culture inundated with selfishness, materialism, gossip etc., yet we know it's a hollow existence. The Bible tells us to seek God's will, which is perfect, and let Him direct our paths. This means we allow God to change the way we think and our values. The world values money, power, fame, and pride. It asks the question, how much can I attain? Put this aside! We should be asking how can I contribute to the Kingdom of God!! How can my life reflect generosity, grace, mercy, and humility? By reading and studying the Bible and allowing God to change us, we can resist the temptations of this world in our lives.

What temptations do you face that make it hard to live God's way?
