We all have a worldview. It influences how we see and view the world around us. We see it lived out in our decisions, our friends, our behavior, and our speech.
So when we talk about worldview, what really influences it? Who or what determines how you see the world?
Where you spend your time determines your worldview
When it really comes down to it, the main influencer of your worldview is time. Where do you spend most of your time? Is it at school? Then your school is influencing your worldview. Do you spend a lot of time with friends? If so, you’ll notice the way they think is influencing your worldview. Check out today’s verse.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. – Romans 12:2 (NLT)
Regardless of where the majority of our time is spent, as Christians, we should be letting God transform us by changing the way we think. We should be aligning our thoughts with what God’s word says. Our goal should be to make our thoughts, speech, and actions become more and more like the Bible each day.
How do we do that? By spending time in the Bible. We should be reading it, thinking about it, and letting it change us into the people that God wants us to be. And yes, reading the Bible can seem overwhelming, but don’t let that stop you. Get into it, spend even a few minutes each day letting God transform the way you think!
