How to Come Out of Your Cocoon

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines
the course of your life.” ~ Proverbs 4:23

Change comes about only through our willingness to give up old paradigms and replace them with new ones. This is a heart issue.

We resist change because change means death, and we fear death in all of its forms. Especially when it means death to the ego or the self.

Jesus said we must die in order to live (Mathew 16:25). This means we must die to old ways of thinking and replace them with God’s ways of thinking. Only in this way can we be truly transformed.

Only in this way can we truly live.
