Wonderful Words of Others: Rick Warren

Abraham was old,
Jacob was insecure,
Leah was unattractive.
Joseph was abused,
Moses stuttered,
Gideon was poor,
Samson was codependent,
Rahab was immoral,
David had affairs and all kinds of family problems,
Elijah was suicidal,
Jeremiah was depressed
Jonah was reluctant,
Naomi was a widow,
John the Baptist was eccentric to say the least,
Peter was impulsive and hot tempered,
Martha worried a lot,
The Samaritan woman had several failed marriages,
Zacchaeus was unpopular,
Thomas had doubts,
Paul had poor health, and
Timothy was timid.

What excuse have you been using?

OH my.....this is good.

Excuses...the ultimate "Yeah, but..."

I use plenty, and on a daily basis....thanks for the vivid reminder that we all deal with that, you know what, GOD is bigger than any excuse we can think up.

Thanks.
