The world talks so much about our bodies and things we need to have or be. But what about our souls?
Your soul is the deepest thing about you. Jesus said that the soul is more valuable than the world. So why would we not value it? Two things are true: 1. You have a soul, 2. It is the only one you will ever have. - John Ortberg
Romans 12:2-5 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
