The Curse Of Being Average
“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” ( Revelation 3:16)
Some of us, for any number of reasons, have lost our passion for work, God, our families, and everything else in our lives. Even if the stress levels in our lives are only slightly above optimum, our minds, heart, and bodies eventually wear down, and all forms of energy in our lives dissipate. We used to be excited about our goal and our purpose, but for some reason not anymore. We used to care deeply about this person but not anymore. All we want is to be alone or find somebody or something that will give us a few moments of pleasure. The curse of mediocrity ruins us and everyone we touch.
If your heart is lukewarm, step back, take stock of your stress level, notice any negative habits you’ve allowed to develop, and make changes. Don’t settle for being average but don’t just add more activity to your life. To become fully alive again, you may have to eliminate even more than you add.
