Time doesn't heal all wounds

Get healthy... Stop looking at porn... Mend a friendship... Save a marriage... Find a job... Quit smoking... Transform a youth group... Reverse the downward trend of a church...

If you want things to get better, you have three options.

1 - Do nothing.
2 - Keep doing what you've been doing.
3 - Get active and do something different.

It's rare that number one, by itself will work. Time, alone, doesn't heal most wounds.

It's unusual that number two, if not already heading in a helpful direction, will solve the problem. As the old saying goes, the definition if insanity is to do the same things, but expect different results.

The answer to lots of life's problems lies within number three.
Generally, things don't get better unless you DO THINGS which enable them to get better.
