Stop Making Excuses

People have a lot of excuses for wrong behavior. But excuses don’t make up for responsibility. We all have a responsibility to love, respect, care, and have compassion towards each other. We have a responsibility to be honest, truthful, loving, and kind and help those around us who are in need. We also have a responsibility to follow God’s word. We all make mistakes, but when God speaks to you and convicts you to change your ways, you should do it.

People make many excuses not to get involved with helping other people and lending them a helping hand. God is not asking you to be used, abused, manipulated, or walked all over, but He’s asking you to reach out a hand for those who really are in desperate need of help.

Don’t make excuses like: “Why should I do it? Nobody else is doing anything.” Why not you? Why shouldn’t you be the one who does something to uplift another person’s life? You won’t be held accountable for what other people did or didn’t do; you will only be accountable for your own actions.

They will be held accountable for not keeping their responsibility, and so will you if you don’t do what you should do. Why shouldn’t you be the one to forgive and apologize? Why shouldn’t you be the one who makes a little sacrificial discomfort in your own life to help make another person’s life better and more comfortable? It won’t bother God if you do your best to spread positivity and goodness around you and to the people you meet. Just because other people are living selfish, wicked, or unrighteous lives, it doesn’t mean that you have to do it as well.

Do your best so that the day you’re face to face with God, He can be proud of you and so that you won’t have any regrets. It’s better to do too much than too little. Try your best.

God doesn’t require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.
Mother Teresa
