Out with the Old, In with the New
When I was a young child, I weighed more than the average.
I recall seeing 100 pounds on the weighing scale in third grade, could have been earlier.
Then I decided to lose weight in fifth grade. I started eating healthier and became more active. And after I lost the weight, I couldn't use my 'old' clothes to fit the 'new' me.
In much the same way, when we have offered our hearts and lives to Jesus, we consciously become selective in activities we engage in - like watching wholesome movies and shows, reading inspirational books, leaning on the truth in what we say, and being purposeful in things that we do.
It's hard to continue with our old lifestyles when our hearts have become new.
