Why do people want to change others? Is it human nature to want to change someone else into a person we want them to be? Why even care? What is in it for you to change someone else?
Maybe we want to change others just to see if we can. Our own personal satisfaction may be another reason. Here are some great thought to consider when it comes to trying to change someone else. First thing is STOP. If you want to change anyone, change yourself. I have tried the former and have come to the conclusion, they are not worth my time. Why you ask? Well first off, they are not going to change until they are ready. So change yourself into an example they can see and may want to emulate.
Live your life one day at a time and in such a way that when you go to sleep at night, you sleep without laying there wondering about what you did today. Live your life in such a way that if Jesus was with you all day long, you would not be ashamed of anything you did that day. For you that do not believe, still act in such a way that “if you did believe” and Jesus was beside you all day, you would not be ashamed. Doing good is always a good thing. But many in the world have their own perception of what is and is not good.
If you are a believer in Christ, then try this. Read one chapter from one book of the New Testament and one chapter from Psalms each day minimum. Go far a walk each day you can, and try to live your life as if Jesus Christ is taking every step with you.
Again, do not try to change others. You are wasting time, energy and effort to do so. The very best way to change someone else is for them to see your fruits (or actions). If your words are Christ like and your actions are not, you will be seen as a hypocrite. So keep tabs on your own actions, fruits or works, whatever name you wish to call them, and do what is right by yourself.
