Chaos and decay are the natural state of things.  It is a struggle to improve, it is paddling up-stream.  It’s easy to go with the flow.  An ex-girlfriend of mine used to get so annoyed because I am just not a go with the flow kind of guy.  One year while planning out a vacation to Yosemite and June lake she laughed at the fact that I had planned out most of the times and places to stop and eat.

Actions matter

A friend of mine says it’s because I’m meticulous. That ex would use a less complimentary word.  But here’s the point the planning is fine put the doing is the thing.  Now if I didn’t plan it’s far to easy to let things slide.  Don’t carve out the time and it’s almost a certainty that time reading the Bible, praying, meditating, learning will get pushed to the side.  If you’re a Christian man, a man of God, your told to be a Christian leader.  Do you really think that is going to happen all by itself?

Do nothing and life decays

It’s no different then a muscle or the mind, don’t use it and it atrophied.  So why does the idea of things getting better by themselves permeate society?  This whole notion that nature and society evolve just doesn’t make sense based upon what I see.  I see life deteriorating and society going down the path to the loss of freedom.  Families falling apart, schools getting worse, economies collapsing.  Is this really a sign of growth? Of evolution? If it is I sure don’t see it.  If we really are evolving why in a recent survey do over half of parents think things will be worse for their kids?
Do you see any indication that things get better on their own?  Or does it take planning, and a lot of hard work?
