God wants the best for us. He is our good, good, Father. It is for our benefit that He tells us not to copy the customs and behaviors of this world. Believers have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. God promises that if we let the Spirit control our minds, it will lead to life and peace.
Questions for further thought:
1. Why is it hard not to copy the behaviors and customs of those around us?
2. When was a time you let the Holy Spirit change the way you think and what did it feel like?
Challenge: What is an issue you’re dealing with? Talk to God about it and ask Him to transform your thinking.
