Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
When we’re young, we get our cues about what’s important in life from our parents. As we grow older, we’re influenced by our friends and society as a whole. But if we get our identity from what the world says is important, we are sliding down a slippery slope. God’s word tells us who we are, we are truly loved by our Creator. As His truly beloved, we should get our cues from Him. God’s word lays out example after example of how we should live and what we should deem to be important. As much as that differs from what the world says, these things will bring about a peace and fulfilment the world can never offer.
