No More Excuses

Why is this generation a generation of excuses?

Not enough time. I can’t. I don’t have enough money. I am not smart enough. I’m to busy. What will people think.

We are a generation of excuses. As people we come up with every excuse in the book for not doing something that we know we should do. I’m guilty. You’re guilty. We are all guilty of making up excuses to get out of taking the next step of our lives. So the question is when? When will we begin to stop making excuses and become a ‘do’ generation? What if the excuses stop and the action started? Imagine if you began to take a stand, to take the next step and cease the excuses. What would it be like?

Credit goes to, I have not idea how I found this post, but I wound up at this page and liked what I read. I think I make too many excuses. Sometimes I think I am too old, too young, too mature, too immature, too early. The problem is that a lot of this is coming from me… not from God. There is so much that I cannot do, but then there is so much that God can do and he wants to do through me.

I think that is a problem of this generation, and I am a part of that problem. We are a giving generation, and we have seen this for those who were at Passion Conference where 1.3 million was raised for global giving. And we have seen over $350 million raised for the Haiti relief. Twitter has revolutionized how we give (and I will write more on this soon). But I think there is a major problem to all of this. We are giving, but when it comes for us to actually have to step out and act instead of reaching into our wallets, wearing TOMS shoes, or a TWLOHA or Invisible Children shirt we back off. We must risk a lot to gain a lot.
