A quote I discovered this morning said, “Life doesn’t get better by chance, it gets better by change.” I think that quote is right on target.
Have you ever known someone who constantly blamed their lack of accomplishment on circumstances beyond their control? I recall talking to one such man, a professing Christian, who claimed he “never got a break in life.” In his mind, success was simply a matter of chance. His failure had nothing to do with his own sour attitude, lack of diligence or lukewarm spiritual life.
Like many people, he didn’t see the need for change on his part, especially a change of heart, which the Bible calls “repentance.” Repentance means a turning from those behaviors which God labels as sin. Those are the behaviors that hinder us from enjoying God’s best and which will ultimately exclude us from Heaven.
Remembering that quote, “Life doesn’t get better by chance, it gets better by change” will give you the mindset to redeem the time.
