Learning to say No

Not sure if you have ever come across this quote from Charles Spurgeon, but it makes a lot of sense to me:

"Learn to say No. It will be more use to you than to be able to read Latin."

Isn't it incredible how hard we find it to say the word 'No!?' Those of us who are "people pleasers" keep piling on more and more things onto our work-load, but are slowly sinking under the burden. Even Jesus needed to say NO at times. He had to draw aside from the constant demands and find time to connect with his heavenly father.

Mark 1

35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”

What are you saying 'Yes' to at the moment, that you perhaps need to be saying No to?!

Living in Grace
