“And without faith it’s impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6
I stood at the bottom my friend’s staircase as we discussed what to do. Give it away or keep it? Give it away or keep it?
I said, “Just do it. Give it away.”
With some hesitation she relinquished her excuses and then boldly stated, “I’m going to do it. I’m going to give it away.” And then sheepishly added, ” But not today.”
She needed to get rid of some old clothes that were cluttering her house and driving her crazy. I guess her struggle was not so much in the giving away, but in the fear of giving away. Fear of the doing.
Fear forbids us to move forward. It keeps us from doing what we know we should.
Her situation seemed easy enough to me. Cut and dry. I’m a throw away girl. I can’t stand clutter, so it’s easy for me to get rid of extra stuff. Give it away, or throw it away. I don’t fear I’ll need it later.
Like NIKE, I can just do it.
Ah, but I’m not that way with everything….
