As we grow up, we sculpt a framework for how things should be. This perspective forms as we navigate our experiences, shaping our worldviews. However, the feeling of rightness doesn’t always equate to what’s truly right, a notion we sometimes overlook.

Consider the concept of muscle memory. Just because a particular action feels familiar doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the most effective or correct way to do things. Likewise, in our spiritual walk, we often lean into what feels comfortable without evaluating its alignment with God’s truth and what He wants for us.

In 1 Thessalonians 4:1–10, Paul urges believers to excel even more in their walk with God. This notion of “more” extends to the parable of the talents, where God commends those who multiplied their resources, showcasing that God applauds our pursuit of excellence and desire to go beyond the status quo.

As Christians, we should be careful that the systems governing our lives don’t limit our potential and spiritual growth. We should ask ourselves, “How much of our life is confined by familiarity rather than potential?” and pursue a life that challenges our established norms.
