Have you ever heard the term “church hopping?”
The term references people who “hop” from church to church in a vain attempt to find utopia.
The church hopper doesn’t deal with or face the problems inherent in his personality or outlook on life.
Instead, he believes that changing his environment is the answer. He tries to change the outside, yet does no changing on the inside.
And therein lays the trouble: if the church was a utopia, it loses its utopian status with the arrival of the church hopper.
Why? Because the church hopper brings his dysfunction into his new church environment!
Side note: The same analogy can be used for people who relationship hop. I’m just saying.
I’m sure you get where I’m going with this.
As Vern McLellan so simply and eloquently states:
What Will You Bring?
So, what will you bring to the New Year?
I’m all for taking a good, earnest and honest look inward. Next up is letting go of any dysfunction, and then tossing out the things in my life that no longer serve me.
The New Year offers a clean slate (shucks, when you think about it, every new day does that!).
Let’s go into 2016 sans the baggage.
And if we do any hopping, let us hop on to bigger and better things!
