Hello everyone.

On Monday, someone asked me which was more important; changing one’s behavior or changing one’s nature? I responded that it’s more important to change one’s behavior rather than changing one’s nature. Memories fade. Stories change. People change. Behavior changes. Nature doesn’t. It all circles back to what we call life.

We should be focused on changing our behavior rather than our nature. Just as every human is a combination of spirit and matter. You can change the form, but you can’t change the essence, so it is with our nature and behavior. Our nature in life fits into much larger, cosmic purpose that God has designed for eternity.
Every single nature of you have is prescribed by God: your race, skin color, hair, and every other feature. He custom-made your nature just the way he wanted it. He also determined the natural talent you would possess and the uniqueness of your personality. Nothing about your nature is arbitrary. It’s all for a purpose. Your nature isn’t accidental.

However, you could choose to modify your nature but you can’t change it.

Your behavior on the other hand, is a reaction of the things you’re exposed to, born into, people’s attitude towards you, etcetera. Your behavior is mostly driven by something. Right now you may be driven by a problem, a pressure, or a deadline. You may be driven by a painful memory, a haunting fear, or an unconscious belief. How you choose to respond will form your behavior. The choice is always yours.

Changing one’s behavior should be more important than changing one’s nature.
