How do we live a pure life in a very impure world? It is really hard--with all the music,TV, social media, movies, and just everything surrounding us nowadays! Well, it starts in our thoughts. That's because before we even do something that is a sin, we think unholy thoughts, which lead eventually to actually doing it. So how can we stay godly in our thoughts in such an ungodly world? One way is surrounding ourselves with the right friendships. Our friends truly do affect our thinking! Another one is listening to Scripturally sound sermons, which really renew our minds and shape how we think. That's not to mention how much listening to godly music, and just about every aspect of technology and social media really affects us too. One good verse to encourage us to be godly and not conform to the world's views is Romans 12:2:And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
And of course, prayer is very important in our walk with God. He is the One who ultimately we are accountable to!
