I can tell you what they’re going to do

“If you want to repeat history, do it the way it’s always been done.  If you want to change history, do it the way it’s never been done before.  History makers are rule breakers.” _Mark Batterson, The Grave Robber: How Jesus Can Make Your Impossible Possible


Call me a cynic if you like. I prefer to call it being a realist. But I can tell you what they’re going to do…

They going to do what they always do.

No matter what they say or promise, I promise, they will do what they always do.

You can hope otherwise.

You can pray.

You can believe…real hard…

But chances are, they will do what they always do.

Deep down, you know this about them and they know this about you.

That’s why your family, friends, and colleagues don’t jump up and down when, in a good mood, you make promises and plans. Because they know…

They know what you always end up doing.

Of course people do change…

But before you buy in wait to see if they do it for so long that it becomes what they always do.

Hint: That’s what those closest to you are doing with you.

The ONE THING for today: There is nothing wrong with hoping and praying that it will be different this time. But don’t count on it. Count on people doing what they always do. You will seldom be wrong. Disappointed? Maybe. Wrong? Hardly ever.
