COMPLACENCY AND THE DANGER OF IT

Hey everyone,

Hope you are well

 

Today we will be sharing on complacency-

Complacency can be seen as-

‘A combination with a lack of awareness and actions to progress in, an example of complacency is the type of attitude someone has had for a long time, of uncritical satisfaction with oneself or one's achievements.’

As we can see complacency is an attitude that one can say is built up over time, with dissatisfaction with ones current state and or achievements. You are in such a way when you feel as though your efforts aren’t enough, or that you have tried and maybe it is just best to stay with the average and not put in as much effort and work in, for different results.

Such a state can make one accept and do less than is necessary and that can be very dangerous because of what you miss out on had you given your best in the first place and not allowed yourself to become complacent.

 

Revelation 3:15-16 - “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”

This scripture came to mind and it made me reflect deeply on the term complacency and checking my own life and if I am complacent in any way. It is not wise to be in such state, as the word says you are neither hot nor cold you are just there wondering day to day and get by doing and accepting the minimum.

No matter what life throws at you we should aim to not be lukewarm because the consequence of such will be God spitting you out of His mouth. How sad will this be if it were your story?

Do you know how deep and strong of a term this is, think about it when you don’t like the taste of something you are very quick to act on that distaste so that you are not associating yourself with it, so you do what will help the situation by spitting it out, because the taste is not something you want anymore.

We discard things we don’t like and if this is in the word to address lukewarm people, then we must ensure that we don’t become what God will spit out.

So reflect on areas in your life and see where you have been complacent and pray over it and let God address those things in your life. And go as far as praying for areas in your life where you have allowed yourself to become lukewarm.

 

 

Reflect on this-

-      Which areas in your life are you complacent in?

-      What do you struggle to do?

-      What is the root of this complacency?

Be blessed and encouraged
