STOP AND THINK Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life. (Dr. Herbert A. Otto, author)

There is no doubt that growth often involves a willingness to make changes in your habits and lifestyle. Many people are unwilling to take that risk, fearing failure and embarrassment. And Dr. Otto’s challenge to experiment with life could be dangerous. You need to have a healthy self image and a solid foundation of good behavior.

Teach them [God’s] decrees and instructions, and show them the way they are to live and how they are to behave (Exodus 18:20).
