EXCUSES (Allowing, Avoiding, Explaining)

What’s wrong with making excuses?

BIBLE READING: Exodus 3:1-18

KEY BIBLE VERSE: “But I’m not the person for a job like that!” Moses exclaimed. (Exodus 3:11, tlb)

Sometimes we make excuses to avoid serving God. Moses made excuses because he felt inadequate for the job God asked him to do. It was natural for him to feel that way. He was inadequate all by himself. But God wasn’t asking Moses to work alone. He offered other resources to help (God himself, Aaron, and the ability to do miracles). God often calls us to tasks that seem too difficult, but he doesn’t ask us to do them alone. God offers us his resources, just as he did to Moses. We should not hide behind our inadequacies, as Moses did, but look beyond ourselves to the great resources available. Then we can allow God to use our unique contributions.
