From Excuses to Reasons

May 15, 2022
1. There’s a fine line between an excuse and a reason.

2. We often turn excuses into reasons to defend our bad behavior.

3. The root of an excuse is blaming something internal on something external.

4. Excuses compete for the boss-ship of your life.
Hebrews 12:1 Let us lay aside everything that hinders - and the sin which so easily entangles us - Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

5. Excuses can be selfishness; disguised as humility.
Hebrews 12:2
Fixing our eyes on Jesus - The author and finisher of our faith - Who for the joy set before him endured the cross.

6. You can make an excuse or you can make a difference; but you can’t do both.
