People say that they "want to get better" but few want to do what it takes to get better. We all want to be better but it is much more fun to win a million dollars in the lottery than to earn a million dollars by going to work 40+ hours a week for years. Athletes say that they "want to get better" but they often find excuses or reasons to not obey the commands that a coach gives them. We say that we "want to get better" but we don't jump for joy when God tells us to do something we don't want to do.
Lord, if I truly desire to get better, please help me to be excited about doing what You want me to do.
