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. ~ Romans 12:2
Keep your eyes on the prize! When your focus remains on God and living in the boundaries of His instruction, it becomes much easier to see the contrast between His ways and the world's ways.
If you've ever wondered what God's will for your life might be, practice this discipline: Seek to Love Him and Love others with rabid tenacity. It will keep you from chasing the world into dead-ends and help you make the right decisions for the long haul.
As you go about your day loving God and loving others, God's call for your life will come into focus. Get the order correct... it does matter.
