Every few months I go through a slew of WordPress themes to see what’s out there and consider renewal of one or more of my websites. Often seems a waste of time, why not stick with the old and tried and true? But like my mother who had to rearrange the living room furniture every few months, I get the urge to swap posts and sidebars around and change the colors and try a new scheme.
Our faith should get unsettled, too, with staying the same. Improvement, growth, maturation, are all high concepts in Scripture. Sometimes it seems we might get bent out of shape for nothing, as we rework spots and corners, walls and floors, but for a soul with Christ in view, the furniture and rooms begin to get old at certain points.
Renewal of our faith, then, is a good thing.
