If You Want to FIX the Problem You Need to Know What the Problem Is

in a passage from Blue Like Jazz the author, Don Miller, recounts how he and a friend were out protesting this or that...

in the process of the chapter he realizes:

1. protesting doesn't really do too much--that maybe he wants to be known as someone who is against this or that rather than really doing something about it
2. that if he is really going to do something about the problems in our world he has to reckon with the real problem...him

you see, we're always willing to change something (or someone) else...but we are the ones (every time!) that God is interested in changing.

Changing is hard work maybe thats why we all have such a hard time, just one more thing for that busy life of ours. Re next day remember we are having to keep that lamp ready too.
