Summer Change

I have a quote in my office from Dave Jacobs, a pastor, teacher and coach.  It says: “Your church is perfectly designed to get the results it’s currently getting.  If you want something different, you’ll probably need to do something different.”  I like that quote, not because it is about church, but because it is about life.  We have all probably heard by now the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  So, when I think of that quote, I think much wider than church.  I think of life, and how to be something other than what I am right now I must change.  If I want to be thinner I need to change my diet and exercise plan.  If I want to improve my reading ability, I need to read books.  If I want to be a better hunter, I need to learn how better hunters hunt.  If I want to be a better cook, I might need to take a cooking class.  Change is difficult because it demands us to do something that is unlike what we have been doing.  So how can I become a better cook, golfer, husband, wife, mother, father, child, driver?  I must be willing to do something different than what I am doing now.  Here is my challenge: pick something this summer that you want to change, and then change your habits in order to reach the desired outcome.
