Change isn’t everything.

Change isn’t everything.

Acts 25: 4 “Festus answered, ‘Paul is being held at Caesarea, and I myself am going there soon.”

Sometimes it is wise not to make changes. Change doesn’t necessarily mean development. Change can mean insecurity.

The reply of Festus was this:

“I have just come into leadership …

The previous leader, Felix had Paul held in Caesarea.

Paul is a Roman citizen and needs to be tried in Caesarea.

My predecessor was right, he is under guard and it is right for him to stay there.

I am going there to finish what my predecessor started.”

Wisdom knows what to leave in place.

Wisdom knows when to honour the past.

Wisdom knows what to finish.
