Romans 12:2

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

From DSC:
I’m a broken person. As such, I don’t mean to post the piece of scripture above to be pointing figures at anyone or to be telling someone how to live and what to think.  But my experience has been that God’s ways are often 180 degrees opposite from the ways of the world.  So, often times, we need to be retrained in our thinking and in regards to our perspectives and assumptions (whether they involve faith-based items or not).  Sometimes, the old tapes and messages need to be thrown away. That’s why I posted this item.

I also post this because I believe God knows how He made each one of us and which abilities, gifts, passions, talents He gave to each of us.  I view my job as to identify the passions and gifts He gave to me and then go to work on developing them — while striving to use them in serving others.  A fulfilling, WIN-WIN situation indeed.
