Are you stuck in a rut? Is
each day the same:
go through the motions
go to bed
next day repeat ?
Do we think if it's Thursday
it's sausages and Friday is Fish (and chips) If so, why don’t we try to do
something different? Small changes can make a huge difference to our daily
life. How about:
taking a different route
to buy our daily paper;
actually saying hello to
everyone we meet;
our activity levels just a little;
a little faster
the fruit first then see if there’s still room in our tums for cake?
Could we try a new recipe,
try a new author at the library or bookshop, try a new hobby, even listen to
a different kind of music or do we think the world as we know it would end?
What would happen if we did try one or more new thing and liked them?
Wouldn’t our lives be better?
How about our spiritual
lives? Jesus changed the world; he showed a radical way of living, loving
folk talking to people as human beings not inferiors, speaking out against
injustice, changing the world a little at a time. Remember he started small
with just 12 disciples. Do we always say the same prayers at the same time?
Do we feel uncomfortable if we see a new (or new to us) hymn on the board?
If we always do what we’ve always done we will always get what we’ve always
got. Is 2018 the year to question if that is enough and, if not, what we
have to do to change?
