Complacency

This morning, the above word seem to appear in my thinking from out of the blue.  When this happens,  it means I need to do some research so I looked up the old meaning of the word “complacent”.  It means to “be pleased with oneself” and this got my attention because this can easily lead to self-righteousness and judgment.  Also, my spiritual study becomes rote and mundane; almost comatose.

Colossians 3:23 states, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”  This applies to everything I do  with no exception.  I will replace the thought of complacency with joy and gratitude for a new day and a deeper understanding of my true identity.

New Blessings Each Day

Every day brings new blessings.  Some may appear to be challenges, when actually, they bring us out of the complacency and mesmerism of this world.  Others will reveal God’s presence as birds singing, flowers blooming, family and friends. All things Good are from God.  Colossians 2:2-3 reads, “My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
