I was trying to open a new app on my phone and I got the message something like “update software” or “new version required to open this app”. I didn’t want to take the time to update my phone with the new app.
And we all know what happens. We go to update the new software and everything changes. I like things to be just the way they are now that I have finally learned how to use it. But in order to get the full benefits of the program I am wanting to use, I am going to have to take some time and update the app.
Our spiritual lives can get the same way. We can get complacent in our daily routines of quiet time and weekly worship. Then we start to get used to it and it becomes too familiar and we slowly push quiet time to a quick minute and start skipping worship.
Before we know it we are in a bad slump and in need of a spiritual update!
In order for the programs on our phones and computers to work properly, we need to keep the software updated. In order for us to operate as God intended and to receive the blessings He has for us, we have to keep our spiritual self updated. God’s word doesn’t change, but our minds can get off track and we need to constantly have our “heartware” and “mindware” updated.
Let’s not let our busyness and complacency get in the way of our needed updates. Take the necessary time each day to upload your mind and spirit with God’s daily word through scripture and prayer. I promise your Spiritual software and Mental hardware will run a lot smoother when they are updated daily!
