“What you feed your mind determines your appetite”
Zig Ziglar

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.

Remember: that we are not doomed to the patterns of bad behaviour in our lives. According to Romans 12:2, you can be transformed by renewing your mind. I love this quote from Zig Ziglar. What are you feeding your mind with? The way we renew our mind, is by feeding it with good “stuff”. I believe that when we meditate on, read or study God’s word, we are renewing our minds because we are feeding it with good “stuff”.

Go: and find scripture where Jesus included people. Jesus included strange people, even sinners. If you are unsure of where to start, pick one of the first four books in the New Testament and start reading through it. Pay special attention to the people Jesus reaches out to. When you find such a passage, just read through it slowly, pray about it, ask God to speak to you through the passage. Meditate on it and allow the Holy Spirit to change you as you renew your mind.

Feed: your mind with the good, the clean, the pure, the powerful and the positive word of God.
