Complacency. That big word that sounds so good until it gets you into trouble. I met this guy some time back who approached a couple of us for an enquiry. He was directed to me but he came in rudely, as if I had chased him in the dream the night before and collected his dinner. He was so rude! I calmly asked him why he was aggressive. Oh boy, did I touch the rattlesnake! He demanded to know why I’d dare say he was aggressive when that was the character God gave him. Can you imagine that?
I’ve heard people blame God for all sorts but this one was different. But are we not often like that? We give excuses why we are the way we are. We say “it is hereditary, it is generational, it is peculiar to my tribe, in my place, that’s how we do it.” That makes us feel good because we think we have a genuine reason why we should not change. Unfortunately it keeps us under. I suggest you joyfully push for change. Stop blaming life or God for making you rude, lazy, stubborn, selfish etc. God did not give you any bad character. So stop being complacent.
