To The Root

Repentance is a call to the root, and hence it is not directly a call to change behavior, but rather a call to change what one trusts to live a full life.  Repentance will entail a redefining of what the good life is and it will entail a shift in reliance upon certain resources and strategies to obtain it. Out of all this a change in behavior will flow, but any change of behavior apart from an underlying change in trust will be merely a moral reform, a reform that is akin to mending some structural problems of a building with a crumbling foundation.
