In order for something to grow, it has to start with a seed that has been planted. There are seeds which have taken root in the minds of some people, and those seeds have shaped their way of thinking causing them to think and act in certain ways in which may cause a person to think they are right; when in actuality, the things they do could very well be wrong or produce negative consequences in the person’s life. Even if a person is in the wrong atmosphere or environment, and the person desires or wants better for themselves; the person can have better and even do better; it starts with the person changing their mindset. It all goes back to the root. It is not enough just for a person to renew their mind the first thing in the morning. A mind should be renewed all throughout the day; each and everyday.
Romans 12:2 says “Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.”
Be blessed, be encouraged, and have a great day.
