I sat stagnant for a long time without growing spiritually. I was just soaking in and not giving back so I really wasn’t experiencing spiritual growth. Changing my thinking in this area changed my relationships and my life.
Many people face similar situations in different areas of life. We have good intentions that never transform into actions. We have gym memberships, but don’t exercise. We have nutrition information, but don’t eat properly. We have savings accounts, but don’t use them.
Growth takes action. What does it look like when you’re growing? Just think about kids, we can often miss how they are changing. But others who don’t see them often say, “Wow, you’ve grown since I last saw you!” Growth is usually gradual when you’re up close and involved, but when you take a step back you can see differences – but the results are because of action!
