Change For the Better

Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.” Mark 1:14-15
We are not only beings, existing in the here and now. We are also becomings, straining towards the there and then. We are beings in process, constantly changing and yet rest and inertia seems to be our natural state. Everything and everyone eventually comes to a stop.
We are also creatures of habit. We often end doing things the way we have been accustomed over time. Einstein is often quoted as saying, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.”
Jesus’ call to repentance is a call for change. There is goodness in our being but we have to become and change to bring that goodness out and make it real and actual.
