What goes through your mind when a business goes under new management? If it’s an establishment you favor, you probably hope that nothing happens to change your opinion. If it’s a troubled business, maybe you hope for a better outcome. Sometimes, we need to put our own mind and behaviors “under new management.” Ephesians 4:22-24 explains that to follow Christ means to put off your old nature and acquire a new nature. But what does that mean? Ephesians gives answers: don’t go to bed angry, be truthful, deliver an honest day’s work, watch your mouth (Ephesians 4:25-32). That’s pretty specific. Essentially, it’s all about focusing on what is right, true, noble, pure, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8). Can you manage that?
