Why You Shouldn’t Take Shortcuts
We live in an instant gratification world. It’s easy to expect things without having to wait for too long. If you think about inventions like the microwave, self-checkout, and Amazon Prime they all reduce the amount of time you have to wait. When we try to apply this way of living to important issues in life such as our goals and future, we don’t always get the same outcome. There aren’t many shortcuts in life for the important things. Our goals can take time to accomplish. Sometimes our future looks one way and then it quickly changes. It’s easy to get frustrated when our timeline doesn’t match God’s. We have to remember that God’s way is the best way.
God calls us to live a higher life, that often means taking no shortcuts. Our character develops while we’re waiting. God is more concerned with building our character first before our dreams come to pass. When we’re developed, we’re ready to go to the next level. If we go to the next level and we’re not ready, the next level becomes a burden and not a blessing. Whenever you’re tempted to take shortcuts to reach the next level, pray to God that He’ll give you patience and self-control. Ask Him to help you make the right decisions and He’ll do just that.
