Ephesians 2:2

in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.

Romans 12:2

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

How well do you adapt?  We have to adapt to many things in life, if we don’t we’ll be miserable or more miserable.  Adapting from summer to winter is the hardest for me.  I love warm weather and haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate the cold.  Truth is I hate clothes so the fewer I have to wear the better.  Coats are simply uncomfortable.  But I must adapt!

Some can adapt easily to any situations they are put in, small crowds large crowds, picnic in the park to dinner at the Ritz and boss in business to wife and mom.  Adapting is just a way of life.    But we are not to simply adapt to the ways of the world.  We may have to live in it but we don’t have to join in.  We may need to love others but we don’t have to tag along.  We may have be here now but we want to be in eternity forever.

So don’t simply adapt, be the change for the good.

Be with me Lord daily as I adapt.  Amen!


One thought on “adapt

  1. :). I’m your polar opposite! I HATE hot weather (although I’ll suffer in the heat to go birding). My grandson takes after me. He lives in AK, and wants to go outside all the time–even if it’s below zero. He’s 19 months, so he prepares by putting on his boots and his gloves and doesn’t understand why his mom wants to add more (after all, he DOES have a onsie on!). I want to adapt and change by becoming love.
