Change and Growth

If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living. (Gail Sheehy, journalist)

Why is it that so many of us resist change? After all, change is inevitable. As Sheehy suggests, growth of any kind is impossible without change. As we age, we might fear that we’ll become so sedentary that we won’t enjoy life. To ensure a sense of well being, perhaps we’ll have to take steps to begin exercising, reading, learning, trying new experiences—anything to add growth.

I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. (Philippians 1:9)
