Pasta…. left alone will conform itself to its surroundings.
Our Minds… Left idle…. will conform itself to its surroundings…
We need to continue to renew our minds with the Oil of the Word… To make sure we are broken away from conformity.
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
