“Do not conform 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)
All you see isn’t real and all you hear isn’t true, which is why all must be checked against the word of God. The Bible gives you the plain reality of the world and it is the standard of everlasting truth. God gave us a brain to discern error and to judge motives, so don’t listen to worldly minded people who have no sense of righteousness.
Keep your mind fixed on the Lord and upon His kingdom so the temptations of this world will lose its appeal to your soul. By beholding what’s good and true the mind will be transformed to follow suit.
Let’s pray today that the Spirit of God may guide us in discerning truth from error.
