The Process of Progress
They say a tiger can't change his stripes. That a leopard can't change his spots. These sayings (actually derived from an Old Testament passage) are used to mean that one cannot change his or her essential nature.
Tigers are always tigers and will always act like tigers. Leopards are always leopards and will always act like leopards.
We think this about ourselves and other people sometimes. "I'll always be like this." "This is just who I am." "He'll never change."
In many ways, it's probably true...but what if a tiger was no longer a tiger? What if a tiger became something entirely different? What would it do then?
And what if WE became something totally different, what would we do then?
Open up to Ephesians 4 this week and find out.
