Some say that change is constant, others say that change is good, but constant change can lead to a state of disorder and confusion. Here recently, I have mentioned my youngest daughter several times in my Pastor’s Pen as she has now graduated from high school and is beginning a new part of her life. Just last night we were discussing some of the changes that she has been experiencing over the last couple of months and others that will take place in the very near future.

To be certain, change is a part of the life that we live here on this earth, and whether we like it or not, it is a reality that we have to deal with. Yes, without a doubt some changes are good, and some are necessary, but not all change is good, nor is all change necessary.

I remember learning in school how that the Second Law of Thermodynamics states something to the affect that things tend to go from a state of order to disorder unless acted upon by an outside source. But, even in our world, there are some things that change so slowly that from our perspective they appear constant. For example, how many hours are in a day? Or, how many days are in a solar year? We know that we can trust a compass, because north is always north. When a child is playing outside he is not afraid to throw his ball into the air, because he knows that it will come down. Yes, change may be constant, but thankfully there are somethings that do not change, otherwise our world would be thrown into chaos and confusion.

The sad reality is that in our society there are many which are advocating a rejection of “all things old” including the belief systems upon which our society is built. Recently on Sunday morning we looked at Proverbs 22:28 which warns us: “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set” and yet there are many that are attempting to do just that. The sad truth is, if they are successful we may never find our way back home.
