At Issue – Purpose
When we really want to do something, we come up with a million reasons why we should. We become the world’s greatest saleswoman, convincing God why our plans are so rational. But when we don’t want to do something God’s asked us to do, we reverse the process. We criticize. We nitpick. We search for the irrational or the impossible in God’s plan. Our own weaknesses loom large in our vision. When Moses heard God’s plan, he immediately started the excuses. And God immediately shut him down. God doesn’t want your excuses—he wants your open heart.
