While change of any kind is rarely easy, it is often inevitable. Nonetheless, I confess I am often as frustrated by change as anyone else.
When we grow too accustomed to anything, we face the temptation to overlook it or take it for granted. We settle into ruts and become lackadaisical about our personal discipline and lifestyle habits. We let frantic, frenetic busyness consume our frazzled psyches and exhausted bodies. We surf and scroll on our phones instead of unplugging and relating to our loved ones face-to-face.
The past several months have caused many of us to reevaluate our priorities, beliefs, attitudes and desires for the future. As we have faced a horrific global pandemic, social unrest and divisive politics, we have realized that our actions in this generation have consequences for the next — for better or for worse. As the psalmist writes, “Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice. Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever” (Psalm 112:5-6).
Practicing righteousness — living for and investing your resources in God’s purposes — lasts forever.
