Why don't people want to operate in a life of continued improvement?
I see people falling into these categories:
- They see no need for improvement. They are fine just the way they are.
- They are insecure and don't want people to think that they need to improve.
- They are prideful and don't want people to know they don't know as much as they put off.
Which category do you fall into? Or do you see more categories? I am sure there are more.
I think I regularly fall into the first one at first and then slip into second one once there is no way around avoiding number one. Meaning, it is too obvious to everybody else that I need to improve in this area (the elephant in the room).
The reassuring thing about being a Christian is knowing that once God starts a work in you, he will finish the work (unlike my many attempted home improvements).
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6 ESV)
