You have heard it before. If you put a frog in a pot of boiling water, the frog will jump out. If you put that same frog in a pot of room temperature water and slowly bring the water to a boil, the frog will cook to death. The point is that slow change is not often recognized and that slow change will often result in our demise. However, when we allow ourselves to see the big changes in our life and choose to respond appropriately, we succeed.
Lord, help me to see that any small changes that I make in order to live both in this world and also with You will most likely result in my demise while if I see the need for drastic changes to align myself with You and separate myself from the world, then I will live ... forever.
