Recently, I did a video where I tried to help you understand that one of the greatest blessings or problems we have is the way we were raised. Whether or not you consent to it, that has, to a great extent, affected your life in very many ways.
If you were raised with great values, it’s a blessing. If you were raised poorly, you’d have to do some work to retrain yourself into doing right.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 KJV
The word, train is from the Hebrew word, _chânak_ which means to narrow. It’s really hard or almost impossible to narrow adults except the adult becomes as a child again. This explains why the thought of changing a spouse in marriage is outrageous. You only train children.
Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18:4 AMPC
As a matter of fact, Jesus told you that true change only comes when you become as a child. If you have to reprogram yourself to walk rightly to make progress, then you must be ready to be as a child.
Organisations that train people ensure that they first have capacity for such training. They only employ those who are qualified and send them for training. So, what they do, in the real sense, is just to advance you in the area that you have capacity in.
A lot of people are repeating history in different ways, with different spices, and in different locations.
The Christian is not designed to manifest a society, a people or a culture, but Christ. That’s why in John 3:3, Jesus said that we must be born again, not transformed. In Romans 12:2, however, we were told that we need to be transformed.
You cannot understand the will of God until you retrain your mind with the Word. Become as a child with the Word and let it school you and rid you off every wrong earthly programming.
Become the best you were created to be.
