MOLDING WHO WE ARE

J.B. Phillips' paraphrase of Romans 12:2 says, "Don't let the world around you squeeze you into its own mold, but let God re-make you so that your whole attitude of mind is changed.  Thus you will prove in practice that the will of God is good, acceptable to Him and perfect."

Isn't that good?  Let God do the molding in your life!  Let Him do the shaping and crafting and refining, and let Him do it from the inside out.  Don't let others, no matter how sincere and helpful they may be, mold you from the outside in!  After all, how do they know what sort of person (or personality) God wants within His family in a given place to accomplish His purposes?
