Are you just interested or committed? Your schedule will tell you!

When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. ~ Kenneth Blanchard

What passions and convictions has God given me to do?

If I’m just interested in building a strong marriage, I’ll do it when it’s convenient. If I’m committed to building a strong marriage, I will find ways to make it stronger.

If I’m just interested in being a good parent, I will find ways to improve my skills as I have time. If I’m committed to being a good parent, I will make it a priority to improve my skills and maintain a well balanced family life.

If I’m just interested in being a follower of Christ, I will do it as I have time in my schedule. If I’m committed to be a follower of Christ, I will make it a priority to be thankful for what He has entrusted to me. I will make it a priority to daily seek His wisdom. I will make it a priority to know Him better so that I can better discern His voice through my daily activities.

What father, when giving his child a fishing pole, would not also teach His child how to fish? What passions and convictions has God given me to do? Am I just interested in doing what God has asked? Or, am I committed to follow Him?

Together, we are more then just interested. We are committed.
Together, we find trust through experience.
Together, we have confident expectations because of our trust.
Together, we all succeed because we care enough to help each other.
Together, we are stronger.
