Growth is a part of life — either you are growing or you are not. It’s your choice, and only your choice, if you want to change your life or some part of it.
We all need to work on some area of our lives. It can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. We can always improve. The reason so many don’t is that it is hard work. People will say, It’s no fun — it is hard. Changing our thinking can be a tough process. In our culture today, it seems as if hard work is a disease, and we’ve built up an immunity to it. We want everything right now, and we expect achieving, growing and developing will be easy.
Anything worth having will take work. When we work for something, we tend to appreciate it more. When it’s just given, and requires no effort on our part, we tend to not appreciate or value it as much. Our investment in our own lives helps us to respect the process. I believe there is an area (or areas) in our lives that we need to work on.
Here is a thought: O.A. Battista said, An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it. Let’s do the Lord’s work and watch the good things that happen in our lives. Do better — be better — live better. You are worth the work!
Just a thought,
