Every moment that you are alive, you are learning new things. The interesting thing is that our brain doesn’t seem to like to learn and change. When we encounter new situations, we try to understand them based on information extrapolated from prior experiences. This seems to be because our brain is locked into a physiological mechanism that requires work.
Romans 12:2 says: “Do not conform any longer 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.”
This means that we can’t just ‘change’, instead, we have to train our brain. We have to develop new ways of interpreting data. Out of this renewal, comes a new way of being, doing and understanding.
