Reasons to Praise: Day 16 – Adjust

To adjust is to alter. It is not possible to adjust without making a change.

The process can involve something small that is obvious only to the one doing the altering. Sometimes the process is so huge, it is visible to all, even when they do not know exactly what occurred.

It can occur in public places as well as in the hidden places of the heart. A collar. The hem or waistline of a dress or pair of slacks. How an item was hung on a wall. The pitch or tone of a voice… as in a child being told to use his or her “inside voice.”

There is usually a standard or desired fit that the adjusting is designed to accomplish. It becomes important to know what standard we are adjusting to reach. His or the world’s?

He is clear in His direction, “Do not be conformed to the world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” So as we modify, alter, fine-tune, arrange, recalibrate, overhaul, tweak, let us be sure that it is to fit His standards and no one else’s.
