Why limit our progress?

"I can't do that." "I am not ready." "It is too hard for me to do." "Let someone else be responsible." Sound familiar? If we permit it, we can become very adept at excusing ourselves. And there are usually a number of "very good" reasons of this kind to support our stand for not taking a stand for Truth!

What is more important? Absolving ourselves of responsibility and perhaps temporarily avoiding difficulty, or demonstrating, a little more each day, our understanding of and consecration to Christ? In either case it is our decision. And if we choose the latter, we have the assurance that we do not work alone. The Christ, the true idea of God, comes to heal and save all who obey God's commandments. Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10. It is inconceivable that we can have this abundant life while in ignorance of its presence or while slothful in its demonstration.

If it's not right, don't go along with it
