THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2, NIV
I sometimes feel like a walking square peg and everywhere I look there are round holes! The “truths” of today’s popular culture bear no resemblance to the Truth of the Bible. Music is full of anger and hostility; talk shows laud bizarre lifestyles and false religion, schools teach sexual immorality and the “theory” of evolution but deny equal time to Biblical truth.
Today’s culture tells me that there are many ways to achieve happiness in this life; God’s word says that Jesus is the only way to eternal happiness.
For many years I tried so hard to be accepted – to just fit in. Paul lets us all know that non-conformity to things of this world is in line with God’s good and perfect will. In other words, it’s okay to be a square peg! What a relief!
PRAYER: Lord, thank you for showing me that as long as I follow you, it’s okay to just be myself.
