Complacent Self-Suffciency

2 Chronicles 12:1After Reheboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel with him abandoned the law of the Lord. (NIV 1078)

My Musing – This is a typical scenario. Before we are established we lean on God a lot. Afterwards, we have a tendency to look at who we’ve become and what we’ve accomplished rather than who got us there and made it all possible in the first place.

My Advice – After you graduate and become established in your job, and you are enjoying life and living comfortably, be on guard. It is at times like these that we can begin to feel self-sufficient and complacent in our spiritual lives and in our dependence upon God. Do not let that happen.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
