Loving the Word

Pondering this today:

 1-2 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. ~Romans 12:1-2 (The Message Translation)

One thought on “Loving the Word

    I love this! I remember when growing up with my parents and whenever I went out without them, they reminded me that I was representing them and my actions were a reflection of them as well. This made me really consider what I looked like to others and now that I think I am grown 🙂 I find myself not caring about how people view me.

    When I think about it now, I know that my mother reflected God and wanted the same for me, by just being my best self at all times. Just letting my light shine.
