We want to change, but not to change too much

Thoughtful and truthful sermon at Wapping Community Church. We all want the benefits of change. We want:

1. Eat better.
2. Budget better with our money.
3. Yell less at the children.
4. Be better people

Going further for my audience, we can fill in the blanks. We want to:
1. Be better project managers,
2. Be better communicators and project leaders
3. Say "no" and be stronger stand up for what is right for our projects.

We all want to change. However, we don't change because we don't want to change too much. We don't want to stand out from the crowd. We don't want to haul our bodies out of bed an hour earlier to get to the gym. We don't want to, because we are afraid of what might happen if we change too much. What if we stand out? What if everyone laughs at us and gossip when we stand out, and then tell the story for generations if we try, but fail.

The bottom line is "Honestly, looking the mirror - do you want to change? Or do you want to change, but not too much?" Are YOU willing to leave your family and homeland to start over again in another country with $400 in your pocket, suitcases and a young family? Tough questions - there are no easy answers if you want to change. Change is tough - the question is "Are you willing to do it to get the results you want?"
