God calls believers to a higher standard. God calls believers to not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of their minds. Are you living just like the world lives?

We decide whether or not we will love God above all else and our neighbor as our selves in each moment of the day. Very often we fail in both areas because of sin or weakness on our own part. 14I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.

You will appreciate every dollar you make after having to work hard like everyone else. Having a job isn’t the most fun part of anyone’s life but it does pay the bills.

The church is a living organism made up of people called out of this world to have a passion for Jesus. Opportunities for Bible discussion are once again at hand. If there isn’t, my friends, that is a dangerous position to be in. God has to deliver us from a Sunday morning only spectator mentality about the Christian faith. Being a Christian is not dependent upon, nor is it summed up by, simply sitting in a pew and looking bored with the preacher. The Christian faith is living dynamically.

If you never take responsibility for your own actions then you will never be able to change your ways. Your friends and family are probably extremely annoyed at your lack of owning up to your problems and if things don’t change they may never take you seriously.

Own up to your own mistakes and then you can start to take pride in that things that you are doing right.

We may be tempted to eat too much, or to eat foods that are not good for us, but maybe we don’t control ourselves in other areas. We fail at trusting God; we want many things and sometimes make our possessions more important than people. Instead of thinking about Lent as a time to give up or add something to your life, think about it as a new start. This way, when Lent is over, you will have a new spiritual practice that helps you stay close to God. Jesus was able to resist the devil because he knew the truth. He trusted his Father and knew what was important.

Saying you are going to meet up at a certain time and not showing up even if you had the intentions of going doesn’t just make you unreliable it makes you a liar. Try a little harder to leave your house early or make sure to not over-schedule to the point where you are having to cancel plans constantly. This is not a good behavior to continue to have and it will constantly cause problems for you as an adult in the real world.

Try a protein shake for breakfast and skip all of the junk food as meals, your body will thank you. Over time your child-like taste buds will adjust and you will actually enjoy eating more healthy options. You may even start to crave a fruit salad instead of a handful of cookies for breakfast. Pack your lunches to include healthier foods so that you aren’t tempted to swing through a drive-thru for chicken nuggets and ice cream.

Unless you are an emergency room doctor that works the midnight shift, you need to adjust your schedule and start living a normal life. Most jobs at entry level positions are going to require you to start your day in the morning and sleep at night. Changing your sleep schedule can be a tricky thing at first but after a few days of waking up extra early, you will be able to go to sleep at a more normal time at night. Getting your schedule in check is a big part of growing up, sleeping all day will only lead to your life passing you by. Wake up a decent time and start looking for a job, you will need to keep better hours in order to keep a good job anyway so start getting your schedule on track now. How do you expect anyone to take you seriously if you spend most of your time sitting in front of a computer playing games or staring at your smartphone?

If everyone around you is buying their first house or moving out of their parents home to their first apartment it may be time for you to do the same. One of the most annoying things for most people is being hit up for money constantly. If every time you reach out to your friends or family you are asking for a loan or handout they are going to stop taking your calls. Why should they have to work hard for their money just to hand it to you? People in the real world have to work hard all day in order to afford the luxuries that have come so easily to you. Make your own money and then you will appreciate the hard work your friends and family have put in while giving you handouts whenever you ask.
