It’s Sunday, so this morning I went to church. Craig and I attend church every Sunday, except for a few every now and then when we are out of town or something. Anyways, the message this morning from Pastor Scott at Genesis Church got me thinking about the need to stay curious.
Curiosity killed the cat, they say. But we aren’t cats.
We are meant to be disciples. A disciple can be defined as someone who never stops learning. Someone full of curiosity. Someone who doesn’t stop asking questions.
God has given us an amazing mind. Our brain has the ability to learn so much. It gives us the ability to be creative, logical, and humorous. Beautiful symphonies, amazing inventions, groundbreaking scientific discoveries… They’ve all come from minds that God created.
So, what impact should that have in our walk with Christ?
Love The Lord With All Your Mind
All your mind.
I’ve heard that verse a hundred times, but at church this morning, I got to see it again in a new light.
What are our minds made for? They are made to learn and stay curious. As disciples for Christ, we should always strive to ask more questions, find more answers, and learn more about the Lord. To love the Lord with all of our mind means we have to use ALL of our mind.
Do you have a creative mind? A logical mind? Are you able to see things in ways that others can’t? Are you able to make people laugh? Do you have a vivid imagination?
You can use all of those abilities to love God.
So, how do you stay a curious disciple? You keep reading the Bible, asking God questions, and nurturing your mind’s natural abilities. You never settle for status quo and you never become complacent in your biblical studies. Once a week on Sunday isn’t going to cut it. It takes consistent study and repetition for our brains to retain new knowledge. It’s so easy to put our brain on auto-pilot as we go through the routine of life, but when we do that, we aren’t maximizing its full potential.
We’ve been blessed with such a powerful tool right between our own ears. It’s something that we often take for granted and don’t use the way God intended us to. However, it’s never too late to become curious about God.
So, how will you use the amazing mind that God gave you to love Him and serve others?
