Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Ro 12:2)
There is an old advertising jingle that says, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” There’s more truth to that than most people know. The Bible tells us that it’s important that we renew our minds. A renewed mind transforms the soul. It also makes it possible to discern the will of God. And when we do, we are able to recognize what is good and acceptable and perfect.
NOW IS THE TIME …
We live in a time when renewing the mind is especially important. As incredible as it may sound, the world is full of people who do not know right from wrong. Many don’t know who they are or even what their gender is. Identity confusion, gender confusion, and other similar problems exist because there is “spiritual confusion.”
Yes. If ever we needed a renewing of the mind, now is that time.
THINK ABOUT IT …
In the cartoon above, Papa is right! A great cartoon really should help a person think. We love to make people laugh, but we try even harder to help them think. That’s a large part of the mission of “Bible Study Cartoons.” This is a ministry of the Catholic Roads apostolate, and we offer it freely to whoever God brings this way — for His glory, of course.
