Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Excuse.
It’s the words we offer as an explanation for having not done something. We hope it removes the sting of fault or blame or guilt.
I’m too busy,
I already have too many things to do.
I’m not good enough,
talented, or experienced.
There are others who can do it better.
or will be preferred.
Someone else will be able to do it.
“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17, NASB)
We need to stop making excuses. We do what He has put before us to do, what He calls us to do, knowing –
He will help us to do it,
He will equip us,
It will be a blessing to others,
He will be honored.
“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6, NASB)
