Complacency

This is some bits of our pastor's sermon two Sundays ago:

From Alex and Brett Harris’ Do Hard Things, quoting the daily periodical Bits & Pieces:
______________________________________________________________________________
Complacency is a blight that saps energy, dulls attitudes, and causes a drain on the brain. The first symptom is satisfaction with things as they are. The second is rejection of things as they might be: “Good enough” becomes today’s watchword and tomorrow’s standard. 
Complacency makes people fear the unknown, mistrust the untried, and abhor the new. Like water, complacent people follow the easiest course — downhill. They draw false strength from looking back.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Truth is, it was an eye opener for me...
