A paradigm is a way of seeing the world that determines how we think and behave. We receive the paradigms we live by through our family, culture, religion, education and wounding. A paradigm shift is an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about things or a way of doing something is replaced by a new and different way. As we mentioned last week, we will go through paradigm shifts in our walk with Jesus as we pass through different seasons of life. These new ways of seeing and thinking are for our spiritual growth and for the benefit of others. What sparks the paradigm shift in our lives and the lives of others? How do we relate to those who resist the changes in our lives?
