We began with the word repent – a second thought, change of mind - this means we change the organ of thought: the brain • we change how brain cells connect with other brain cells ◦ we rewire neurons to form new thoughts, feelings, actions • we are re-writing the brain’s owner’s manual
Paul describes a frustrating struggle, a losing battle with himself– suppose he wanted his readers to feel that frustration for themselves• if so, Dr. Seuss could not have done a better job of creating confusion• however, my guess is that Paul wrote it in a state of frustration– early on, he had put every effort into living a sinless life• but every time he thought he had achieved it,◦ a new sin sprouted in some area of his life• if he spent his entire time with nothing other than God’s law,◦ even the law introduced him to sins he had not known existed
I have been mulling over something this past school yearTwo days a week I drove three of my grandchildren to school– two of them attend school in what I refer to as a new suburbia• the residents are almost exclusively young families◦ everything is new – new expensive houses and condos◦ and new apartments, a few of which are low-rent properties• none of the houses, condos or apartments have much yard space– there’s an obvious cultural distinction of two classes in new suburbia• the basis for it is monetary – those with affluence put it on display◦ the vehicles in line to drop off kids tell a story◦ some drive the “family car” or truck, others drive expensive SUVs• this is elementary school! ◦ yet kids coast in on electric bikes or mini-scooters◦ or parents bring them in over-priced golf-carts
