Albert Einstein once said: The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it. I think he painted a picture of complacency with this statement. We get satisfied with the way things are & instead of stepping out in courage to make a difference – we excuse our mistakes & refuse to retake the future.
I’ve found that complacency in any form is dangerous; in your marriage & family, in your finances or job, and in the church.
In the book of Revelation – God directed John to write letters to various churches help them realize their true condition & to the Church in Laodicea he wrote “I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot – far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit.” Rev. 3:15 Msg
To this Church God basically said – you’re lukewarm (complacent) … & that makes me sick. I wonder if God feels the same way when those of who claim to be Christ followers treat our marriage, family or work in similar fashion?
