Food For Thought: Habit and tradition powerfully influence our actions and beliefs. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish our cultural beliefs from Biblical truth. As we grow in the Lord, we must examine our beliefs to make sure they are based on what the Bible says rather than merely on what we were taught. We can hope that ideas we were taught will agree with Biblical truth, but we can’t be sure unless we examine them. We need to examine our own beliefs and be responsible for what we teach others, including our children and people in our church. Are we teaching them our opinions and our perspective or are we teaching them God’s?
