We’ve all heard that there are 2 kinds of people. There’s lots of different types of 2 kinds and I have one more. Those who make excuses and those who make things happen. Those who make excuses are sitting at home while those who make things happen with the same circumstances are out getting stuff accomplished.
My sister Sheri and her husband, CW have been through some trying times recently. CW had a pacemaker/defibrillator installed and has been waiting on disability to kick in. They’ve been without a paycheck for months. So when his great niece and nephew were abandoned recently they had plenty of excuses they could have made to shirk familial responsibilities: poor health, no money, almost 60 years old.
But they didn’t.
Instead they stepped in as foster parents so that the young kids could be with family. God blessed this act of faith and their church and community have flooded them with help. They are overwhelmed and humbled.
What God will do for one of His children He will do for others. If we stop making excuses.
