This past Sunday, I had a discussion with a few 4-6th grade students in my Sunday school class about sharing the Word of God with other people. I asked them to tell me a few different ways that we can share Christ with others. They were very quick to tell me that there are numerous ways to do it – and very simple ways to do it at that. They were full of wonderful examples and fabulous ideas. They’re very creative! But then I turned the tables a little bit on them and elevated the conversation.
“So, why do we have so many excuses as to why we don’t do all of the things you all mentioned?” I said. There was silence. I could tell the wheels in their heads were turning. I may have struck a nerve, but the biggest nerve that was struck in that room was my own. They had several different answers to my question, ranging from things such as being intimidated, fear of rejection, not feeling qualified, fear of offending, etc. It seemed to me that a lot of our excuses (including in my own life) boiled down to having some sort of fear about something. I have been allowing fear to sweep over my life, telling me over and over that “I can’t”.
“I can’t do this, because…”. How many times have I said this in my life?…
