Change? no thanks, you can keep it.
We have all probably learned at some point, whether it be from high school musical or not, to stick to the status quo. Status Quo? What does that really mean? official definition: "The existing state or condition". That doesn't sound too bad, does it? Keeping things just the way they are. We all know that's how Lutherans like to do it. People become so comfortable with how things are that change just seems strange and tedious to them. Why change when everything is perfectly fine the way it is? Well, if we never changed anything, we would never lean new things. We wouldn't take chances, learn from those risks. God calls us to be fishers of men. Sometimes, to do this, we have to change the status quo. We have to venture out into other groups of people, make new friends. A little change never hurt anyone, and you may even find more joy in it. Joy in knowing that you have ventured out of your comfort zone, and it is ok. Sometimes, to find our joy in life, you have to change a few things. You have to find the perfect mixture of random things in your life to really find what makes you happy. Then, you will truly find the joy in life.
