I do wonder, sometimes, if we go too hard with our plans too early, and the result is that we feel trapped by them.
God has given us minds – minds which need constant renewal and growth in line with the gospel (Rom. 12:2) so that we see our world and ourselves in line with truth. Using them well is an act worshipful obedience (Rom.12:1), and using them badly is an act of idolatrous rebellion (Rom. 1:18-32).
