To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
When King Solomon wrote this he was speaking specifically about change. It is easy to see this when you read the rest of the chapter. For he speaks of all the different seasons and times of change that one will encounter during a life time.
Our Heavenly Father is a God of change. The season being is that we serve a God of life and not death. Anything that is alive will be in a continuous state of change. This is why God says that as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest in Genesis 8:22. Many will state that they willingly embrace change, but usually that means only the changes that remain within their particular boundaries of comfort. Or you could say their comfort zone.
As a pastor I love change, especially as it relates to the church. A church that cannot or refuses to change will grow stagnate and die.
I overheard a conversation between two men at a post office one day. One man was complaining about how much money his daughter was costing him. The other father then spoke up and said, “My daughter doesn’t cost me anything. She once cost me tuition, spending money, car payments, insurance, clothes and such. But she died last year and now she doesn’t cost me anything. Oh how I long to spend money on her again.
The principle is that anything that is alive is going to change and cost money. I would much rather spend, change and live. Than to save, rot and die.
