A Story of a Blind Man - Today is spring and I can't see it - Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes

One day, there was a blind man sitting on the step of a building with a hat by his feet and sign that read 'I am blind, please help.'

"A creative publicist was walking by and stopped to observe.
He saw that the blind man had only a few coins in his hat.
He dropped in a few more coins and, without asking for
permission, took the sign and rewrote it.

"That afternoon the publicist returned to the blind man and
noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins. He paused
awhile and the blind man asked him if he was the person who
had rewritten his sign and, if so, what did he write?

"The publicist responded: 'Nothing that wasn't true. I just
wrote the message a little differently.' He smiled and went
his way.

"The new sign read: 'Today is spring and I can't see it.'

"Sometimes we need to change our strategy. If we always do
what we've always done, we will always get what we've
always got."

Did you ever stop to think that the New Testament part of
the Bible is almost silent on methodology? I think the
reason is obvious. If it weren't, some of us would stick to
the same methods used in Paul and Peter's day religiously
and rigidly. While God never changes and while his Word
never changes, oftentimes our means of communicating it need to change with the changing times.

Remember, "Nothing changes if nothing changes." In other
words, if what we are doing in our relationships, our family
life, and in our churches isn't working, we may very well
need to change ourselves and/or our strategies and methods.
