Series: Screen Time | Week 1: Glowing Rectangles
Romans 12:2Do 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.
Whatever we expose ourselves to the most is what we’re going to think about. What we think forms who we become. The opposite of being conformed is being transformed and transformation happens only through renewing our minds. Keep in mind, the information we have access to through our screens is shaping and conforming the way we think. What we need is for our minds to be renewed because only then will we be able to know and live out God’s perfect will for our lives.
When you think about your daily life, would you say you’re being conformed to the patterns of this world or transformed into being more like Christ? How much is your screen time helping or hurting this process? What steps do you need to take to renew your mind so that transformation can happen?
