Change

Scripture reading

And Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

–Matthew 18:3

Thought of the Day

Last Sunday, I was watching a football game. One of the announcers said something that was pretty interesting. He was talking about one of the teams that had a record of four wins and four losses. As they were entering the second half of the season, the coach was asked about what the team would have to do in order to make the playoffs. This is what he said.

“You can’t be who you want to be if you remain who you are.”

I like what the coach said, especially if I take his words to heart concerning my spiritual life. You see, in order to be the person that God calls me to be, I must be willing to change. I must be willing to be changed. Jesus knew this. Paul knew it. How about you? Do you know it?

Prayer

God, Change me. Amen.
