Through living out the bible for over a year, Esquire editor-at-large AJ Jacobs learnt that our behaviour affects our thoughts. In other words, if you start acting in a biblical way, then you will start thinking in a biblical way. So it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than the other way round.
So by living out the bible for a year, Jacobs' view on sacredness has also been changed. Before all of these, he did not see any value in it at all. Now, he understands what sacredness is and how it can make life more meaningful.
