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