In a sense, our male minds are like marinated pork ribs: They take on the character of whatever we soak them in. Only after going through the fire, however, does our true flavor come out.
So how does God’s man “marinate” his mind in the precepts and ways of the Lord? The Bible gives us the principle of meditation, as we read in Psalm 119:23: “Your servant will meditate on your decrees.”
Lord, I want to take on the character of
Christ, to live my life in selfless love.
Teach me as I saturate my mind with
Your Word and Your decrees.
