So, (insert friend's name here), can I borrow that thing to help me out. You said you're not using it right now.
Friend: Yeah, sure. No problem. I'll bring it by tonight after work.
Nothing. Or, after you turn your back, "there's no way I'd loan any of my stuff to them ever again. They can't be trusted to blow their own nose."
See you tonight!
How may times have we seen this? How many times have we done this?
And how many times has God been patient with us for the same behavior.
"I promise to go to church more."
"I promise to tithe more."
"I promise to stop lying to myself and to you, Father."
Ouch! It would be better to not promise anything that we have no intentions of doing...
Make an effort to change. Just one thing at a time. Examine your life and determine where your own personal faults lie. We all have them, and they are different for almost everyone. It's a new year now. Time for a new start.
And while I'm thinking about it, I have a few things to loan out to some friends.
Until next time:
Peace to you and yours,
