Do what you say you would do…stay true to your word…demonstrate a willingness to be responsible…show integrity. When you read these phrases and think about them none of them say this is going to be all about ‘fun’ or ‘personally convenient’ or ‘this is all about being happy all the time.’ Commitment is hard and it takes dedication, it takes time and it doesn’t always serve personal desires.
That is the point about commitment…it is not about you! That is exactly why we need to build our personal relationship with Jesus, he knows what it means to be committed to something that is hard, not fun and not about him…yet he spoke openly with his father to help him keep moving forward and complete the task given to him…and he did it for you and me. May God’s peace be with you.
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”
