If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
Pray more – sin less. Count your blessings more – complain less. Help others more – spend less time thinking about yourself. You'll be surprised at how much more meaning you'll find in life by making a few positive changes in your routine.
As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.
