Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
This world has a draw that has the ability to sway our focus off of the good things of God and more on material things. Anything that moves your motivation from walking in God’s will to walking in your own poses a danger. Keep your eyes focused on your heavenly inheritance and, whether you face hardships or smooth sailing, your efforts will be rewarded.
