No excuses

We find it so easy to come up with reasons as to why we don't want to do things, but perhaps we need to be challenged to leave our excuses behind. Many of us will end up living which too much regret if we don't stop making poor excuses for things. I think this is especially true in the arena's of our faith.

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."

Living in Grace
