Call to Action

What is it about “giving” which causes so much fear?
 
We fear giving in…
Giving in to peer pressure… Giving in to people’s demands… Giving in to weakness
We fear giving our time…
Time is the world’s most precious commodity. We all have the same amount, but it is in the managing of time where it gets tricky and masterful all at the same time. How is it we fear of giving people “too much” of our time. Or rather, do we give enough?
We fear giving up…
Quitters never win! We have heard that all our life. The saying is only poignant if we care about winning. What about when we are strung out, tired and really just don’t care anymore? Yet, still there is part of us that fears giving up. Strange.
We fear giving all that we have…
If I give you all I have, then I will have nothing left to have for myself. How much then do we give of ourselves to others? Fifty percent? Thirty-four percent? Jesus gave 100%!
We fear giving Jesus an opportunity…
If we turn our lives completely over to Jesus what would happen next? The unknown of that is enough to create paralyzing fear in us. Thus, not allowing Jesus to do anything in our lives.
 
I wonder this week if we could get rid of a few of our fears. Life would be so much more abundant if we did…
