New Approach

"If it's a new problem, perhaps it demands a new approach. If it's an old problem, it certainly does." Seth Godin

I absolutely love this quote. If you are stuck in the same old rut, whether it be in your marriage, parenting, devotional life, job, or any other aspect of life that seems to be in a holding pattern, you need to reevaluate and see if there is a new way to go at it.

Stop getting frustrated and angry at the problem and start dreaming of new approaches that will solve the problem!

Insanity has been defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Can I just say that the sacred cows in our lives and in our churches have led us to insanity?

Sports analogy. Browns always seem to start off really solid in the first half. Things work, they build a lead. Then their opponent makes adjustments to stop whatever the Browns are doing that is working. And typically the Browns try to keep using the same approach. And it goes poorly.

What needs a new approach in your life?
