Clashing with the Culture
GOD PAUSE: While it's not for you or me to judge the standards or actions of those around us, it is our responsibility to demonstrate a different lifestyle than the culture around us. Paul says it so well in Romans 12:2. It reads “Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total transformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God's will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in His eyes.” Dear Papa, when I and my friend are surrendered to please you --- that is true worship. May how we think and live be motivated and gauged by your standard and not by the world around us. Amen and amen.
