Is the way we seek to change right?
So often when we are struggling with something, we resolve to change our actions, we make targets and and try hard to change. But this is a mistake.
Many times, I myself have sought to change but in the end feel like a leopard trying to get rid of his spots.
In reflection on a conversation I recently had, resolving to change just doesn’t work, we either feel guilty because we fail, or we become proud when we succeed. So what is the solution?
Repentance. We need to sort out what’s going on, what needs pruning and changing. We need to come to Jesus and confess our wrongdoing.
For me I’ve reflecting on my own life, and i find being self controlled with doing study hard. Effectively it’s laziness. And I need to repent of it rather than resolve to work hard and be disciplined.
But the next question is; What does repentance look like?
What do you think?
