Fall has arrived and the leaves on the trees are changing. Each day the color changes a little bit more. It reminds me of our lives. Little by little things change and we end up where we never expected.
These changes can be beautiful and amazing, but they can also be sad and hurtful. One way to recognize the changes is to look back. Think about where you were a year ago or 5 years ago. What is different now from then?
The opinion of others can also help to show us where we have changed. When people do not see you for a while and then they see you, the changes are more apparent to them.
The most important way to look at out lives is through the eyes of God. Psalm 26:2 says, “Examine me, O Jehovah, and prove me; try my heart and my mind.” When we ask God, He will reveal the areas to continue in and the areas we need to reconsider and divert from our current course.
In our business, school, families, habits, we have to be watching for the changes happening. Whether good or bad, we need to be aware of the changes occurring little by little.
