– Change –

 

 

The word change can send shivers up our spine.  We people don’t like change.

We avoid change.

We resist change.

We hide from change.

We fuss about change.

We argue about change.

We just don’t like the word change.

Our dislike of change is true in our secular life and it is true in our religious life as well.  Christians have as much of a dislike of change as anybody else.  But if we stop and think about it Christianity has always been about change.

From a change of heart to a change in thinking to a change in actions…Christianity is about change.  Maybe that’s why we have such a difficult time changing…because changing is about more than a difference between things…changing – or even accepting change – is an assault on our nature. 

 

Think about that for a while…
