The worst thing we can do is live in perpetual comfort. In our culture we see comfort as an achievement. We cannot be the change our culture desperately needs when we are comfortable. If being comfortable is our goal then we don’t push against the degrading of our culture. We fear the idea we may be financial hurt or an outcast in our world. Go along to get along is the mantra. Years pass us by and we ask, “What happened to our culture?” Your desire to be comfortable didn’t lead to the change we need.
Breaking out of being comfortable starts in our daily lives. What opportunities present themselves to show the truth about God? Who can we lift up that desperately need a lift? We need to take an inventory of the people we come into contact with. Don’t be afraid of making others uncomfortable. The truth makes people uncomfortable because their own failures and sins are put in the light.
It is easy to say, “someone else is better for the job.” If you are called into a specific line of work it is your job. There is always going to be someone better. We can’t just have one person in each category. The world wouldn’t be able to function properly if that logic went to its ultimate conclusion.
In our culture comfort it the best thing Satan can use. Evil is relentless. It doesn’t stop and constantly looks for opportunities to destroy. When we don’t speak up evil wins. When we don’t help spiritually, physically, financially, and emotionally we are ceding territory.
