The Renewing of Your Mind Wash the World Off Daily

STEP NO. 1: TURN THE WORLD OFF It’s really hard to take a shower if you don’t get in one. Speaking of showers, that is just about the one place people don’t take their phones. No wonder showers are so refreshing. No wonder so many of us get great ideas in the shower. In fact, I have a waterproof notepad in my shower so I can write down all the great downloads God gives me. The bottom line is that you need to unplug for more than a few minutes each day in the shower. Take a walk without your phone and reread the last issue, where we talked about a screen-free zone in your house. STEP NO. 2: GET FRESH INPUT It’s a lifestyle choice of mine to read the Bible first thing in the morning and very last at night. Sometimes it’s just a verse, and other times it’s much more.

The only way to get great results at anything — your business, your marriage, parenting, health, fitness, and even your spiritual walk — is to make it a lifestyle. Remember last issue’s article on taking a break from the world? Now I’m going to encourage you to not only wash your body daily but to also wash off the world daily. This is what I imagine Paul was trying to teach us by renewing our minds.

So, how exactly do we wash off the world daily?
