We say things like, "I am too tired to pray" or "I am too busy to attend church or cell group". We excuse our behaviour because we say, "I am only human!"
Sure, these may all be true, but we should be wary of using them as excuses.
Every time a Biblical character made an excuse God challenged them to "go a little further" and to stop making excuses.
Luke 14:18 - “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’
"I never gave or took any excuses." - Florence Nightingale
Romans 1:20 - "For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."
