The Bible teaches us that real change is a matter of heart change. What we love or desire or fear has to be reorientated. The transformation from ‘bringing forth evil’ to ‘bringing forth good’ is not a matter of the right tools: it's a matter of the right treasure.
Stuck people escape from their ‘stuckness’ at the point of imagining that things really can change. Christian promises and Christian hope are the surest grounds for imagining something better.
