This pathetic society we live in today has so many crazy ideas of self-improvement, it’s a wonder why there isn’t more productive people out there. The reason is every time some new quack comes up with something new, everyone rushes to try it, only to be left empty and irritated. This society will do anything to find happiness and joy and spend all kinds of money to do it. T.V. shows and books about improving one-self, all the while these cheap schemes are taking our money and soul.
Have you ever noticed these jokers don’t last long? They don’t last long because their preaching false information to people, and when you do that, your career will be short-lived. I used to work with a girl who tried just about ever motivation and self-help concept on the market, only to be unfulfilled and unhappy in a few short weeks. They all preach positive thoughts lead to a positive life, which is true if you do it the right way. Jesus said” self-help is no help at all”, and without Him, how can we even try to live a descent life? Truth is you can’t.
The reason these pathetic cures for life’s problems never work is because there not ordained by God. He is the only one that will heal an aching heart and wash away our sin. No motivation speaker, no matter how positive they are, can save your soul. It is by Him and through Him that anything is possible not Oprah. People always look to other ways of improvement when Christ is right there saying “Come unto me, you who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”, that’s good news!!! He, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the majestic father wants to give us, rest! You have to be excited to know that, I no I am, and it gives me chills every time.
The only way we can improve, is by letting Christ into our filthy hearts. Come as you are, and He does the rest, just come.
